From 2013 to 2017, I covered public health and criminal justice for NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, the biggest news outlet in Louisiana. Before joining the T-P, I was the head culture writer for Capital New York (now Politico New York) and a contributing writer for The New York Times and Mental Floss magazine. My work has also appeared in BuzzFeed, Slate, The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Outside,┬áVice, Salon, The Village Voice and other publications. I’m currently working as a producer and investigative reporter on “Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.”

I’ve won awards from the Society for Features Journalism, the Associated Press Media Editors, the Louisiana Press Association, the Press Club of New Orleans, and the Southern Pain Society. In 2016, I received a fellowship from the National Press Foundation for his coverage of the opioid epidemic in Louisiana. In 2017, I was an Images & Voices of Hope Restorative Narrative Fellow.
