About

I'm a freelance writer and broadcaster specializing in science stories. My latest book, In Search of Time, was published in 2008 by McClelland & Stewart in Canada, by St. Martin's Press in the U.S., and in by National Maritime Museum Publishing in the U.K. My previous book, Universe on a T-Shirt, won several awards and has been translated into French, Portuguese, and Hebrew.

My writing credits include the Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star, The Walrus, the Boston Globe, COSMOS, Astronomy, Sky & Telescope, Sky News, New Scientist, Cottage Life and many other newspapers and magazines. I've also made dozens of radio documentaries, primarily for the CBC Radio programs Ideas, Quirks & Quarks, and Tapestry, as well as for the Australian Broadcasting Corp. and Radio Netherlands.

I'm also an avid amateur photographer. Some of my work (including science-related images and some astrophotography) can be seen in the photo gallery as well as on my Flickr site.

I live in Toronto, Canada.

During the upcoming 2011/12 academic year, I will be pursuing a Knight Science Journalism Fellowship at MIT.
