Thanks for stopping by! I’m glad you’re here. 

My background is in molecular biology and nutritional science, and I’m the award-winning author of a series of food justice-focused young adult thrillers. I love learning new languages, creating elegant spreadsheets, digging in the dirt, and chopping vegetables.
