Once a self-proclaimed “liquid transfer specialist” at a human genetics lab, Christie Aschwanden (“Rock Face”) now happily makes her living as a science journalist. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Men’s Journal, Mother Jones, NPR.org, the Los Angeles Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine. She lives with her winemaker husband on a small farm in western Colorado where she raises heritage poultry and spends her spare winter hours snowboarding and coaching the local college ski team.
After fulltime gigs at U.S. News & World Report and National Geographic, science writer Helen Fields (“Making Research Personal”) launched a freelance career in 2008. Since then she has spent six weeks on an icebreaker in the Bering Sea and two months at a newspaper in Berlin, where she wrote about monkeys and telescopes in moderately competent German. A resident of Washington, D.C., and an avid knitter, her current projects include a stegosaurus and a hermit crab.
John Dole (“Stem Cells 101”) is a professional photographer who specializes in portrait, music, lifestyle, and fine art photography.
