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.
