I am a doctoral student in sociology at the University of Chicago and a freelance journalist.

I write about politics, culture, and technology, with a focus on the contemporary United States. I like to work with Python, R, Postgres, and nice people.

I've done work for Vice News, Yahoo News, and The Sunlight Foundation, where I was the 2015 Google Journalism Fellow. From 2009-2013, I was a reporter and editor for Personal Democracy Media's techPresident (now Civicist), where I covered technology in civic life and the 2012 elections. Before that, I worked at local newspapers in New York and New Jersey.
