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.

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.
