Natural Habitat: Christie Aschwanden

In our Natural Habitat series, we invite science writers to share their working spaces—offices, spare bedrooms, coffee shops, hammocks—and the accoutrements that help them do their best work. (If you’d like to nominate your office to be featured at Natural Habitat, let us know.)

Today, we visit Christie Aschwanden, an award-winning freelance writer and editor who has written for The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, O: the Oprah Magazine, Slate, SmithsonianRunner’s World, and many other publications, and who blogs at The Last Word on Nothing. A former professional skier, Christie spends her spare time running, cycling, gardening, stomping grapes and chasing chickens on her small farm in western Colorado.
