I'm a writer, editor and producer based in Madison, Wisconsin, where I cover the state Legislature and courts as the Capitol Reporter for Wisconsin Public Radio.
In past lives I've also:
covered modern myth-making (also known as mis- and disinformation) at the DC-based news startup Grid;
reported on the 2020 election and its aftermath for Wisconsin Watch in Milwaukee,
and on local government and business for MLive in Muskegon, Michigan;
written and edited stories about national politics for Vox;
and produced interviews and stories for broadcast, focused on policing and courts, at the PBS NewsHour.
Originally from the hills of western Massachusetts, I'm passionate about politics, culture, and the built environment — in other words, the forces that shape the places we call home. My freelance work has appeared in numerous national, regional and local publications, online and in print. Read a small selection of my work here.
My work has been supported by grants and training opportunities from the Solutions Journalism Network, the New York National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics), and I hold an M.A. from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
