I am a freelance journalist, fact-checker, and research assistant. Originally from Emporia, Kansas, I now live and work in Brooklyn, New York. In 2018, I completed the Columbia University Lede Program for Data Journalism. (You can find my portfolio of data-driven work here.)

I am an enthusiastic hiker, backpacker, and rooftop gardener. I curate a newsletter about outdoor adventure and the environment called Pinch of Dirt.
