I am a freelance reporter based in Seattle. I previously served as an editor at The Stranger, a biweekly newspaper, where I led news coverage. Before that I worked as a staff writer at the Santa Fe Reporter. During my year in New Mexico, I won several awards with the Society of Professional Journalism – Region 9, including First Place for General Health Reporting and Second Place for Enterprise Legal Reporting (both awarded in categories for print publications with circulations between 10,000 to 29,999).  You can also read my work at The Nation, RollingStone.com, Vice News, PacificStandard.com, and The Riverfront Times.
