Reporter & Editor, Online & In Print
Since fall 2014, I've worked as a reporter in Baltimore, where I've covered the aftermath of Freddie Gray's death for the New York Times, a fast-growing startup scene as lead reporter for Technical.ly Baltimore (http://technical.ly/baltimore) and politics and culture as an associate editor for Baltimore Fishbowl (http://baltimorefishbowl.com).
In New Orleans, I worked as a crime reporter with NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune and managing editor with the locally-focused online publication NOLA Defender (http://noladefender.com). Later, I also worked as a reporter with the Charter School Reporting Corps, a project of the Lens of New Orleans (http://thelensnola.org) focused on accountability and public access to information.
Immediately after obtaining a Journalism degree at Northeastern University in Boston, I gained beat and investigative reporting experience at the Rio Grande Sun of Espanola, New Mexico. My year in New Mexico was capped with a series about a questionable New Mexico behavioral health contractor that contributed to a loss of treatment services in an area with the highest per capita heroin overdose rate in the country.
After a stint of service work with Americorps in 2008, I moved to New Orleans and took a job with a nonprofit organization focused on post-Katrina recovery.
