I’m from California. Between 2019 and 2020, I was a Washington, D.C.-based associate editor and staff writer for FCW, a trade publication where I covered the federal workforce and government information technology. I will be attending Columbia Journalism School for a masters’ program in the fall of 2020.
I have also been a freelance reporter since 2017, and I’m an editor at The Strikewave, an independent labor reporting newsletter.
I have written about anti-government extremism on federally-owned lands, climate change, police brutality, gentrification, sex work, oversight of artificial intelligence, bias in algorithms, Silicon Valley, the gig economy, the deadly California Camp Fire, the impact of COVID-19 on federal agencies, the claims backlog at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and leftist politics in Appalachia, just to name a few.
My writing has been published in The New Republic, SF Weekly, Curbed, The Baffler, and others. I’m a former intern for The American Prospect and Roads & Kingdoms.
I won second place for “Best National Feature Story” from the International Labor Communications Association in October 2019 for my story on the Sacramento City Teachers Association.
