I am an experienced health/biotech/pharma journalist who has covered topics ranging from asthma to zidovudine. I have also written about the biotech industry from a business perspective. My passion is interviewing those who are considered experts in their field, and I work hard to develop relationships with prominent thought leaders. I also love taking complex information and making it accessible to my audience. I am looking to take on freelance assignments for websites, magazines, and newspapers. I am also interested in collaborating with someone on writing a book.
