Experienced city reporter and writer. Breaking news, longform, radio, digital, etc. Praised for speed, intelligence and dedication. I find stories no one else sees.

Since 2012, I’ve covered New Orleans education at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune. Before that, I worked for WGBH News and the Boston Globe (news, arts, ideas, magazine, etc.). My work has also appeared in the New York Times, Boston Magazine, WBUR and the Online Journalism Award–winning wbur.org, Ploughshares, the Nashville Scene, No Depression, etc. I began freelancing in 2002 as an arts reporter and music critic.
