About

Hi, I’m Emily. I’m a science writer and rogue tour guide living the nerdy dream in New York.


For the past five years, I’ve written for museums, foundations, and media installations that tell fascinating stories about the world around us. From Space Shuttles, to the cultures of the Northwest Coast, to obscure Roman gods… at this point I know an awful lot about an awful lot, and I’m always gunning to learn more.

Now, I’ve joined the ranks of Museum Hack and get to spend some of my time each week bouncing around the American Museum of Natural History delivering high-energy, snark-filled tales of wonder, time travel, and fancy dinosaur knowledge. Who knew I could get paid to come up with so many terrible animal puns?
