Hi. My name is Cameron, and I am a Science Writer.

I write about genomes, quirks of evolution, the brain, the environment, and even soap (sometimes). I am a regular contributor to Discovery’s Curiosity Daily Podcast. My work has appeared on MinuteEarth and in The Green Scene column in Asheville, NC’s alt-weekly Mountain Xpress.

In graduate school, I studied birds. Specifically, I asked questions about the way they use songs to defend their territories and compete with one another. Since then, I have written for several science publications and taught biology on the college level.

I do this because my passion is to make science accessible to everyone.
