Professional Experience

I am a data-driven investigative journalist eager to dive deep into complicated stories. I specialize in business and political reporting, with larger projects involving accountability in Missouri state government, surety bond fraud, cyber security, and workers compensation fraud. I retrieve, clean, and analyze my own data, build visualizations, and write long-form features. Feel free to reach out to me.
