So you just had to know more about me. Your mistake.
Rose Eveleth is a producer, designer, writer and animator based in Brooklyn. She's dabbled in everything from research on pelagic invertebrates to animations about beer to podcasts about fake tumbleweed farms. These days, she explores how humans tangle with science and technology.
She has a degree in ecology, behavior and evolution from UC San Diego where she did some research on krill, which really was just a front for hanging around in the Pelagic Invertebrates Collection at Scripps Institute of Oceanography.
Then she moved to New York City to get her graduate degree in journalism at NYU. At school, she edited the program's online magazine, built an iPad app, interned a bunch of places, and tried not to get car doored too many times on her bike.
After NYU, she jumped right into freelancing. Yes, on purpose. She's been a columnist for BBC Future and Motherboard, the producer of the Story Collider, the special media manager at Nautilus, a new digital magazine about science, culture and philosophy and the managing editor for LadyBits, a place where women are smart about science. She also edited the Smart News blog at Smithsonian Magazine, and founded Science Studio, a home for all the best science multimedia on the web. Even before that she was an editor of all things animated at TED Education, and a contributing editor at Smart Planet.
These days she's the producer and host of Flash Forward, a podcast about the future, and is helping launch a brand new podcast project at ESPN's 30 for 30.
Rose's work has been featured in the Best American Science Writing anthology, and she's a 2016 MJ Bear Fellow.
In her spare time she makes paper automata, rides her bike, and day dreams about hanging out with a pack of foxes.
