Current/Previous Work

Most recently, I’ve covered city, state and national politics at the Signal, which included California’s highly contested 25th Congressional District race and lifestyle and astrology at Bustle.

Before that, I’ve won an Associated Collegiate Press award for reporting on student parents as a freshman, parachuted into and written about 300-person towns in North Dakota, pestered a senator for an interview in the Hart building cafeteria on Capitol Hill, camped out in rural Minnesota for hours reporting on a developing standoff on a farm, sat in on a 39-hour Missouri Senate filibuster, interviewed supporters at a Trump rally and live-tweeted vice presidential-hopeful Mike Pence’s withdrawal from the governor’s race for a major news outlet.
