Hi there, and thanks for your interest. I’m a multimedia journalist based in New York. I’ve worked most recently at The New York Times, but you can also find my previous work at NPR, the BBC, and other outlets.
I’ve got 16 years of experience in public broadcasting, beginning at NPR–where I was a producer, editor and director on many shows you’ve likely heard if you’re an NPR listener — including All Things Considered and later Wait,Wait… Don’t Tell Me, which I helped launch. I moved on-air after that, and from 2002-2008 was a reporter at WBEZ / Chicago Public Radio, where I started and developed two new beats for the station: criminal justice and business.
I’m also interested in passing on what I’ve learned and am still learning about the news and covering it: for the past several years I’ve taught radio reporting and production at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
