I am a multimedia and data journalist living in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 


I have reported extensively on a variety of topics throughout New England, including politics, domestic violence, opioid addiction, crime, policing, housing and immigration. No matter the topic, I bring a document and data-driven approach, pairing a public-records mindset with shoe-leather reporting and a visual eye.

I code with Python. I have a special interest in health and health policy.

I have a bachelor's degree from Johns Hopkins and a master's degree from Emerson College.


I won first place for Environmental Reporting in 2016 in the New England Newspaper & Press Association's Better Newspaper Awards for my story about emerging contaminants in Vermont drinking water. 

In 2018, I co-published an investigative series looking at the failures that left a woman dead at the hands of her partner 48 hours after calling for help. We won a Vermont Press Award for Best Local Story.

Hire me! I'm currently looking for work in the Boston area or remote. Here's my resume.
