I like telling stories about science, especially when clay rats or paper lobsters are involved. I am co-director of the Emmy-nominated video series Animated Life on The New York Times Op-Docs channel. We lost to Oprah. I am a writer for Bill Nye's new Netflix show "Bill Nye Saves the World" (airing spring 2017). I hosted The Adaptors podcast about climate change and before that was the managing editor of video and substitute host for PRI's Science Friday. I (earnestly) co-wrote a book on the science of annoyingness. Before that, I worked for a NATO oceanographic lab. For the lab's research expeditions, I lived on an Italian ship where apertivi were served on the top deck, hoisted there via pulley by the ship's chef.
