Hi, my name is

After five years in Silicon Valley, I have moved to the Midwest to help build ProPublica Illinois in Chicago, ProPublica’s first regional investigative newsroom.

I also contribute toward the Stanford Open Policing Project, an interdisciplinary effort to help researchers, journalists, and policymakers investigate and improve interactions between police and the public.

Most recently, I was managing editor of Stanford’s in-house news startup Peninsula Press (partnered with SFGate and KQED) and a founding member of the Stanford Computational Journalism Lab. My work has been published at NPR, The Marshall Project, Vox’s Eater, OZY Media, Knight Foundation and Stanford School of Engineering. I previously worked at Mashable and NBC News Digital. I have my master’s degree in journalism from Stanford University, where I explored digital media entrepreneurship, design thinking projects and data journalism. I completed my bachelor’s degree in Broadcast News Journalism from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Other than news, news and more news, here’s what I’m currently reading:
