I am an award-winning journalist and editor focused on politics, justice, health, and crime. My writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Guardian, Roads and Kingdoms, Literary Hub, Fortune, Yes!, Fast Company, Pacific Standard, and many other outlets.
Since 2019, I have also been the managing editor of The River Newsroom, a digital newsmagazine from Chronogram Media that covers New York's Hudson Valley region. In that time, readership has more than tripled, and stories I have edited or written have been cited in national media and by state and local officials, and regularly featured in local radio. In 2020, an investigation I conducted into inpatient behavioral health consolidation during the pandemic was awarded "Best Digital News Project" by the Local Media Assocation.
I grew up in Texas and moved to New York in 2012 to attend NYU's graduate program in magazine journalism. I now live in Kingston, NY. My work has been supported by the New America National Network, the Google News Initiative, and the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, and featured by Longform, the Sunday Long Read, and other aggregators of fine reporting. I also teach editing and reporting in the Journalism department at SUNY New Paltz.
