I am a freelance journalist currently studying data journalism at Columbia University’s Lede Program. Previously, I worked as 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. I enjoy hiking, rooftop gardening, and vegetarian cooking. I curate a newsletter of outdoor literature and environmental reporting called Pinch of Dirt.
