I’m currently a Knight-Wallace fellow at the University of Michigan studying the surprising feminist history and possible future of home economics class. Until the summer of 2017, I covered New Orleans education at | 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, Ploughshares, the Nashville Scene and No Depression, among other outlets. I began my career in 2002 as a freelance arts reporter and music critic. Read my résumé or email me.
