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 the best stuff.

I started freelance writing recently, and am now a science writer for Earth Touch News. To see a list of some of my professional pieces, see My Writing

But before I did that, I started this blog. Partially as a testing grounds for writing in various styles, and partially as an outlet for various thoughts and fascinations. Most of what I write here is focused on fossils and evolution. It's my personal writing playground. 

Enjoy your stay.
