Science Writing and Editing

I offer contracted editing services for science-related documents. For 20+ years, I have edited genres that encompass academic research papers, books, grant proposals, and science-related magazine articles for a general audience. See more about my editing business, d.b.a. Appleseed Editing.

I am also a freelance science writer with a master’s degree in science writing from Johns Hopkins University. My preferred beat as a writer is solution-focused stories about climate, the environment, and sustainable food systems. I also write about health and other life sciences stories on assignment. My stories have appeared in Undark, Vox, Ensia, Knowable, Modern Farmer, and The Scientist, among others. View my clips.
