If you’re looking for an award-winning freelance writer who does in-depth reporting, tells powerful stories, and delivers polished manuscripts, you’ve come to the right place. (If you’re looking for Timothy Gowers, the esteemed British mathematician, you’re definitely in the wrong place. I'm handy with a calculator, but I'll leave the proofs and theorems to Professor Gowers.) I’ve written for many of the most widely read magazines, newspapers, and websites in the United States. I’m the author or co-author of a dozen books, too. I also serve as a content consultant for major corporate and institutional clients, which is a fancy way of saying I do all sorts of other writing outside of traditional journalism.

I am currently working on several stories for Proto magazine. One will examine efforts to develop a more effective "universal" flu vaccine, while the other investigates research on alternatives to conventional antibiotics.
