Old writing shed with bicycle outside

Welcome to my online writing portfolio.

As a health and science writer and yoga teacher, I write about health, medicine, science, and yoga for online and print publications. I also write fiction, poetry, and humor, and draw the occasional cartoon about science, yoga, or life.

  • Health and Science Writing: I have written articles and content for both online and print publications, including Healthline, Men’s Fitness, The Health Journal, and more. I write about a wide range of topics, including health, medicine, science, technology, and yoga.
  • Creative Writing: I write fiction, poetry, and humor for sites such as Recovering Yogi, Elephant Journal, and my own creative writing blog Branáin – Ravenously Curious. My creative writing includes humorous takes on the world of yoga and life in the wilds of Canada.

Below is a list of my writing arranged by date. You can also check out my featured health and science writing portfolio and creative writing portfolio.
