I’m a freelance reporter, researcher, and editor based in Philadelphia, aka the best city in the northeast corridor (you heard me, New York).
Areas of focus include labor (organized and otherwise), sex and reproductive health, less attention-grabbing public health issues, books nerdery, and urban issues of every conceivable kind. I contribute regularly to AlterNet, the Philadelphia City Paper, and the Philadelphia Inquirer, and have made consistent guest appearances in the pages of The American Prospect, The Stranger, Jacobin, Slate, and GOOD. For a sampling of my work, see the other pages on this website.
I’ve also worked for Washington Post columnist Harold Meyerson, Princeton professor Julian Zelizer, labor consultant Amy Dean, and as a staff researcher with The Cry Wolf Project. I most recently worked as a research assistant to the CEO of Solutions for Progress, a Philadelphia company that assists low-to-moderate income people access public assistance and tax credits.
You should probably hire me to churn out snappy prose for you. Or at least follow me on Twitter.
