I work with other editors on coverage plans, help reporters develop story ideas and edit article drafts.
Managing Editor / New York Focus

I commissioned and edited freelance stories for New York Focus, a nonprofit news outlet that covers state and local politics. I also oversaw the newsroom’s content management system and social media strategy.
Senior Reporter / Freedom of the Press Foundation

I oversaw the launch of the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker and served as the project’s first managing editor. In addition to managing the Tracker project, I wrote feature articles for the foundation’s blog, including a three-part history of the Espionage Act and an investigation into ICE’s detention and attempted deportation of Mexican journalist Emilio Gutiérrez-Soto.
Media Reporter / Politico

I covered the media industry for Politico New York, the New York-based media vertical of national politics site Politico. From July 2014 through July 2015, I also edited Politico’s daily “Media Pro” email newsletter.
My reporting and commentary have appeared in City & State NY, New York magazine, Columbia Journalism Review, Politico, New York Observer, Nieman Lab, National Memo, and Jacobin.

I received a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology from Columbia. While a student, I served as managing editor of “Bwog,” the university’s student-run news blog, and interned at the Columbia Journalism Review.
I’m knowledgeable about content management systems and have experience working in WordPress, Drupal, and Typepad. I’m proficient in Microsoft Office and Google Workspace, and I can manage databases in Excel, Access and Airtable. I understand social media and am verified on both Facebook and Twitter. I am familiar with a wide variety of digital security tools including password managers (1Password), PGP encryption, hardware-based two-factor authentication (YubiKey) and encrypted messaging (Signal).
