Hi, I'm Bri!


I've always looked at the world through the lens of a story, full of characters and metaphors and grand themes. At the same time, I'm super curious about the world around me and what makes it all work. 

I spent years working in a lab, getting my BS in Chemistry from Hope College and an MS in Chemistry from the University of Michigan. I made molecules, linked them into polymers, played with electricity, and so much more.


But I was always drawn away from the bench and towards how science and story can work together to not just explain the world, but also change it... so I decided to take the leap and venture outside the lab to start building a career on those principles!
