Journalism Samples

My journalism career has taken me across the country, with reporting stints at (among other places) a major metropolitan daily newspaper, a national online news outlet and a regional nonprofit news startup.    

I have covered media, higher education, health, business, politics, sports, the environment and the artsI created and produced podcasts and started a blog aimed at young readers. Here are samples of my work.
