I’m a professional journalist and editor who’s interested in the the intersection of politics and the media industry. I’m currently an editor at City & State NY, a magazine and news site covering New York City and state politics.
In addition to City & State, my reporting and commentary have appeared in New York Focus, Politico, New York magazine, Columbia Journalism Review, New York Observer, and Jacobin. I was featured in the Netflix documentary Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press and in 2018 was named one of “30 Under 30” in Media by Forbes magazine (though by now I’m over 30).
I attended Columbia University, where I studied cultural anthropology and managed Bwog, the school’s popular student-run news blog.
After graduation, I worked as a media reporter at Politico New York, where I reported on everything from from the movement to unionize digital media workers to the legal drama surrounding Gawker Media.
I later joined Freedom of the Press Foundation, where I launched the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker — the first and only website to comprehensively document press freedom violations in the United States.
Since 2021, I have focused my journalism on New York politics. After a short stint as the managing editor of New York Focus, a nonprofit news start-up covering city and state politics, I began writing for City & State NY and then joined the newsroom as an editor.
In my free time, I help develop Stage Whisper, a free and easy-to-use app that allows journalists to automatically transcribe their interviews.
