About Me

I’m senior editor at Overheard At National Geographic, the magazine’s science and exploration podcast. I also produce and host live storytelling shows for The Story Collider podcast.

My name is pronounced EE-LIE. And yes, I’ve been told by many people that they thought I was a man. Please avoid bringing that up if we ever meet in person. 

Follow me and maybe share some sick animal facts on Twitter: @StoriesByEli.
