About Me


My name is David. I write about science. 

I earned a Master's degree in Geosciences with a Vertebrate Paleontology concentration, and I've done my fair share of fossil-hunting, lab work, and paleo research. But my passion is for science communication; I've taught classes, worked public outreach at museums, and written science articles online, and that is all the best stuff.

As a freelance writer, I am a regular contributor for Earth Touch News, and have written for several other publications. For links to my professional articles, check out My Writing

I also co-host the Common Descent Podcast with my friend and colleague Will Harris. We chat about paleontology, earth history, and evolution, and engage with our growing listener-base as much as possible!

The Meniscus blog started as an outlet for my various thoughts and fascinations. Most of what I write here is focused on fossils and evolution. It's my personal writing playground, though I've written less often recently, as I've been doing more professional writing.
