I am a journalist and the managing editor of the civic tech news site Civicist.
Originally from Emporia, Kansas, I have lived, studied, and worked in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Egypt, France, and New York. Right now I call Brooklyn home.
Outside of writing and reporting, I enjoy hiking, rooftop gardening, and vegetarian cooking. I curate a weekly newsletter of outdoor literature and environmental reporting called Pinch of Dirt. In August 2016 I thru-hiked the Long Trail. I sometimes foster cats, and I make a fine plate of eggs.
