Hi, I'm Blaise!

I'm a writer and communications expert with a deep knowledge of psychology, neuroscience, and the biological sciences. I'm a storyteller. I weave complex research into accurate and engaging articles, reports, medical primers, blogs, and social media posts.

Writing and science are my two great loves, so it only made sense to combine them. Outside of work I write fiction and study data science, feeding the flames and pushing myself to keep growing and improving.
