I'm a freelance journalist and fact-checker with a background in print and audio storytelling. I'm a Californian transplant to the East Coast, and I'm currently at work on a book project based in Rhode Island.
I've written for a variety of publications, including San Francisco, Washingtonian, The Caravan, and New York's Bedford + Bowery blog. My work has been awarded by the Society of Professional Journalists and the SF Peninsula Press Club, and featured by The Wall Street Journal, The San Francisco Chronicle, and Longreads. I've also checked facts at The New York Times and produced radio at KALW, a Bay Area NPR affiliate.
I received my M.A. in journalism from New York University, where I was the winner of the 2017 Threesis Academic Challenge, a competition for graduate theses across all arts and science disciplines. I hold a B.A. with honors in government from Georgetown University. Before becoming a journalist, I served as a 2012-2013 Fulbright Scholar in Sri Lanka.
