NYC-based journalist covering the environment, science, and technology. Passions include marine science; walruses; cities; climate change; grassroots sci-tech. I've co-authored two recent O'Reilly/Maker Press books, "Environmental Monitoring with Arduino," and "Atmospheric Monitoring with Arduino". Also: coffee, knitting, science fiction, cats, photography, coffee.
With over 30 science writer besties, I've contributed to "The Science Writers' Handbook: Everything you need to know to pitch, publish, and prosper in the digital age," due out April 2013 from Da Capo.
