I’m a social justice and solutions-oriented reporter based in Brooklyn, New York. Over a decade of reporting, seven years as a freelancer, I’ve covered everything from New York City real estate to the newsroom inside California’s San Quentin State Prison.

You can view my topics of coverage in the clips sections above. I’ve written about real estate, architecture and design for the past decade. In recent years, my work focuses on U.S. urban policy and social justice movements through the lens of solutions journalism. I love writing about things that work, why they work, and what it means for how we live in cities.

I believe incarcerated people should have a prominent voice in the mainstream media. You can read about my work in that regard under the section titled Empowerment Avenue. I also co-edited a guidebook to help media organizations build capacity to work with incarcerated writers. It was published by Haymarket Books. 

I am the recipient of the 2021 LEDE Fellowship as well as the National Press Foundation fellowship for reporting on criminal justice in the age of George Floyd.
