My humor, lifestyle, travel, and weird science features have appeared in various magazines. These include Sunset, American Way, SEED, The Believer, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, and Glamour. I was also a longtime motherhood blogger at Condé Nast’s Cookie magazine.


Here are two samples for you. One consists of small bites of semi-serious science journalism. The other contains the essence of vintage mom blog.
