I'm the founder and editor of Wise & Well, a new (launched in May, 2023) Medium publication with a growing team of journalists, research scientists, physicians, mental health experts and other topical experts, all of us aiming to make your tomorrow a little better than today.

And now, I'm teaching non-fiction article writing at the Writer's Guide, a Substack newsletter and mentoring/coaching service (launched in August, 2023).

More generally, I’m an independent health and science journalist with more than three decades experience reporting, writing, editing and managing newspapers and websites. I was the founding editor and later editor-in-chief of Live Science, and also editor-in-chief of Space.com, then chief content officer of a media company leading the launch and growth of several health, science and technology publications.

I’m a skeptical optimist. I believe we can all do better throughout life, and I put my trust in science while acknowledging that, like you and me, it’s never perfect, always evolving, and sometimes—oops—totally off its rocker. I sift through studies new and old to find the good, the bad and the questionable. I talk to the experts. Then I boil it all down into concise, accurate, readable takeaways that reflect both what’s known and what’s not.
