About Me

I’m an independent journalist who’s interested in the effects of technology on both the media industry and press freedom.

I was most recently a senior reporter at Freedom of the Press Foundation, where I launched a project called the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker. The Tracker is a comprehensive online database of press freedom violations — arrests of journalists, attacks on reporters, seizures of journalists’ communications, and so on — that have occurred in the United States since 2017. 

Before joining the Freedom of the Press Foundation, I spent three years writing about the business of print and digital media for Politico. My reporting has also appeared in the Columbia Journalism Review and the New York Observer.

I’m a graduate of Columbia University, where I studied cultural anthropology and served as managing editor of Bwog, the school’s popular student-run news blog.

In 2018, Forbes named me one of “30 Under 30” in Media.
