Professional Experience

I'm an award-winning New Orleans based writer and reporter. I worked as a staff writer at the New York Daily News (for five years) where I covered crime and national stories before reporting on criminal justice at the New Orleans Times-Picayune. In 2014, I became a full-time freelancer. My work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Aeon Magazine, the New York Post, and Rolling Stone Magazine's commemorative book, "Rolling Stone Cover to Cover: the First 40 Years." I've written about everything from Run-DMC to the Sandy Hook mass shooting in Newtown to hipster surfers in Queens. I've been a guest on NBC and NPR to discuss my work.
