    I am an experienced science writer specializing in neuroscience, nutrition and artificial intelligence. My work has appeared in Scientific American MIND, Discover and Nature Partner Journal (npj) Science of Learning community site. I write a weekly for Singularity Hub and run the award-winning science blog NeuroFantasic. My work frequently ends up as the most-read article of the week or month. I was twice awarded the prestigious Herb Lampert Emerging Journalist Award, which is given out by the Canadian Science Writers' Association. I have dozens of feedback emails from scientists whose work I covered giving me support for accurately reporting their research to a general audience. I have never missed a deadline in my career, and I take painstaking care that my articles are well-researched and fun to read. I work very independently but often provide updates to my editors and clients. I'm a good team player too -- my last collaboration was a neuroanatomy textbook that is now selling on Amazon.com. I am also highly adapt at academic writing and editing, including review papers and primary research manuscripts. I have published in the prestigious academic journals Nature Neuroscience and Annual Reviews of Neuroscience.
