Independent journalist based in New York City. My work has appeared in Slate, Salon, the L.A. Weekly, the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Hartford Advocate and more. The stories I’ve written – about public records access and police surveillance, politics and campaign finance – have prompted both lawsuits and a little change here and there. Poke around this site for work samples, follow me on Twitter for news links and sundry whathaveyous, and use the contact form below to get in touch with tips and feedback.
