websmile I’m an award-winning science journalist and speaker based in Berlin, Germany.

I was born and raised in Montreal, but I have also lived in Washington DC, Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa, Guelph Ontario, and Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Here’s my CV.

I have a penchant for writing about art and artifacts, fake foods, chemical weapons, the history of chemistry and alchemy, pheromones, sweat, and frankly, anything unexpected or absurd. My work was chosen for the 2017 Best American Science and Nature Writing anthology.

Sometimes I host quirky videos about chemistry.

I’ve been the journalist in residence at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science and a visiting scholar at the Chemical Heritage Foundation to work on a project about the history, science and culture of sweat. More on the sweat project can be found here.
