Since May 2017, I’ve been a senior reporter at the Freedom of the Press Foundation and the managing editor of the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker.

The Tracker is a new website, slated to launch in summer 2017, that will comprehensively document press freedom incidents in the United States. Any time a journalist is arrested, stopped at the border, subpoenaed to testify about confidential sources, physically assaulted, or denied access to public officials — that incident will be included in the Tracker.

Before joining the Freedom of the Press Foundation, I spent three years covering the print and digital media industries for Politico. I previously interned at the New York Observer and the Columbia Journalism Review.

I studied cultural anthropology at Columbia University, where I also served as managing editor of Bwog — the university’s popular student-run news blog — and wrote for The Blue & White, a monthly campus magazine.

While still a student, I created the website “Who Pays Interns?,” which reported on how much different media companies paid their interns.

I live with my cat, Hunter, in Brooklyn.
