Welcome to my virtual office.

I'm a journalist/editor/producer and the digital managing editor of American Scientist magazine. My educational background allows me to specialize in physical sciences and economics, but I've covered most sciences, as well as health, policy, education, and business.

In sum, I'll follow a good story wherever it leads.

I've also worked on staff for Science magazine and the NPR network, and my freelance client list ranges from international magazines and television networks to small public radio stations and non-profit organizations.

While I do not freelance in competition with American Scientist, I can take some projects, and also offer a number of services and consulting, too. So please have a look around my virtual office and be in touch if there's something I may do for you: RobertFrederick (at) NASW (dot) org.
