I'm a freelance journalist with ten years of experience reporting for newspapers, magazines, and public radio programs.
From 2010 to 2013, I was a senior producer at Baltimore NPR member station WYPR, where I launched "The Lines Between Us," a year-long multimedia examination of regional inequality. The series won a 2014 Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University award.
Before I started reporting, I spent seven years as an education researcher, and I've taught at Lehman College, Howard Community College, and the University of Baltimore. I hold an M.A. in sociology from American University and an M.S. from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
I'm also a songwriter and a guitarist, and I fool around with composition (I created the theme music for "The Lines Between Us"). My band Disappearing Ink will release an album in summer of 2014.
