Resume/C.V.

My prose is tight. My articles give energy. They insight. I've covered over a hundred topics for popular readers of physics, energy, space, evolution, mobile phone, social media and technology news. As a generalist I quickly assimilate to the content and needs of diverse projects. Editors tell me I excel at the more difficult stories and I am eager to expand my projects into more long-form and technical assignments. I have a talent for transforming complex concepts into clear and engaging writing.
