I am a freelance journalist with more than 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 a bug zoo in Japan. I graduated with honors from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where I focused on science and environmental reporting.
