Don’t dumb it down -- story it up.

In my role as a creative consultant and contract science writer, I turn complex facts into compelling, accessible stories that engage and inspire audiences.

Quantum Writing has popularized the work of dozens of major science research-based organizations in the United States and Canada.

My specialty is in creative projects that bridge disciplines, push boundaries and empower transformative approaches.
