I’m a New York City-based journalist focusing on law enforcement policy, criminal justice and transparency, often with an investigative bent. I’m currently the Senior Investigator at the Sunlight Foundation’s Web Integrity Project, a transparency watchdog monitoring the federal web. Before that, I spent three years as a Staff Writer at the Village Voice where I covered all kinds of things, but specialized in long-form investigative and narrative journalism. Before that I held staff positions at the Hartford Advocate (RIP) and I cut my cub teeth on city hall and cops coverage for The Star-News in Chula Vista, CA. My writing has also appeared in The AppealThe Daily BeastSlate, SalonL.A. Weekly, the San Diego Union-Tribune, and San Diego CityBeat, among other places. I know CPR and hold an M.S. degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. I also made a beer.
