I am a Philadelphia-based journalist (recently transplanted from Brooklyn). My work seeks to uncover important but obfuscated stories about urban poverty and criminal justice. I also like to write about people fighting the good fight.
I have written for The Marshall Project, Mother Jones, Businessweek, Pacific Standard Magazine, The Nation, The Atlantic, Al Jazeera America, Public Radio International, Salon, Narratively, and other publications.
This piece about gentrification on one avenue in Brooklyn, which I co-wrote, won the New York Press Club’s award for feature reporting.
