My name is Nathan.

Nice to meet you!


I'm a scientist and writer in the Pacific Northwest.

I love making complex topics feel simple, though I often wind up doing the opposite.

I believe no writing is "value neutral", that all writing should and does make claims.

Science news. Book reviews. Water and plastic, and medicine, too! Oh my!

Please let me know if I should write about a particular topic of interest to you!
