About

Andrea Appleton

I am a freelance journalist with nearly a decade of experience reporting for newspapers, magazines, and public radio. As former senior editor of the alternative weekly Baltimore City Paper, I've covered everything from politics to art. In other capacities, I've reported from settings ranging from a remote Indian reservation in northeastern Montana to the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. I graduated with honors from the Columbia University School of Journalism, where I focused on science and environmental reporting.
