I’m a freelance journalist and the Washington correspondent for ArcticToday. I’ve reported from nearly every continent, covering everything from the effects of climate change on mental health in the Arctic to the changing tides of livelihoods in the Chesapeake Bay.
My articles, essays and reviews have been published by The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Atlantic, Pacific Standard, NPR, STAT News, PBS NewsHour, The Toast, Catapult, Vice, Gizmodo, Slate, USA Today, Washingtonian, Maryland Life, Delaware State News, and elsewhere; and I have appeared on CNN and Feature Story News.
I’m also a contributor to Book Riot, a website devoted to books, comics, and nerd culture. My fiction has been published by District Lines, Magical: An Anthology, and Abundant Grace.
Previously, I worked as a program manager and communications director at the International Reporting Project (IRP), and before that I was an assistant editor at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
In my spare time, I moderate the nonfiction book club at One More Page Books & More. Drop by sometime!
