I’m a Chicago-based investigative reporter, radio and digital producer, fact-checker and advocate for government transparency. I specialize in covering the environment, public health, and criminal justice issues.
I aim to tell stories that increase understanding, hold the powerful to account, and examine the human impacts of policy choices, particularly on vulnerable populations.
I am currently a Social Justice News Nexus fellow at the Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications at Northwestern University, and am working on a series of digital projects with WTTW, Chicago’s PBS station.
I previously worked as a radio and digital producer for NPR’s Morning Edition, where I collaborated frequently on cross-platform, deep-dive series with the investigations team.
I earned a Master’s degree in investigative reporting from the University of Missouri in 2012.
I feel fortunate to work in a profession where I am constantly able to learn, meet new people, challenge my assumptions and, hopefully, contribute to public understanding.
I am always looking for new story ideas and opportunities for collaboration. Thank you for visiting my website.
