About Nathan

Ahoy there! This is the part where I tell you a little about myself.

I’m a 30-year-old, soon to be 31, writer living in Victoria, British Columbia. I spent the entirety of my twenties in university - I have a Bachelor of Science in general biology from Thompson Rivers University and a PhD in neuroscience from the University of Calgary; I’ve published 6 papers in the academic world, written two theses, a handful of research proposals, more funding proposals than I can count, and presented my science at conferences all over the world.

My writing career started in 2013 with an article for Let’s Talk Science. Since I popped that cherry, I’ve written for several businesses in Canada and the U.S., dabbled in journalism for local trade publications, and am now working as a technical writer for the B.C. Ministry of Health. I mainly write about science and medicine, but will put pen to paper about any topic that tickles my fancy. I even fumble my way through fiction when the stars are aligned just right.

If you’d like to learn more about me or want to get in touch about a writing project, you can find a link to my CV and my contact information below.
