Hey there! I’m currently based in New York City as a freelance journalist and graduate student at CUNY’s Newmark J-School, where I specialize in urban, data, and investigative reporting. I’m also the Fix intern reporting climate solutions stories at Grist and a volunteer reporting obituaries at THE CITY’s MISSING THEM project.
I was previously the assistant editor for philosophy and religious studies at Oxford University Press, and an intern with the U.S. Department of State and U.N.C. School of Law's Center for Civil Rights. I received my B.A. in American culture studies, English literature and communication design from Washington University in St. Louis. As an undergraduate, I was the editor in chief of two collegiate magazines, a radio show host and DJ at KWUR 90.3 FM and a Lynne Cooper Harvey scholar in American culture studies.
You can probably find me eating Ben & Jerry's and plotting my next day trip upstate.
