Hi there. I'm a cofounder of The Evergrey, a digital news publication that helps Seattleites feel more connected to their city with a daily newsletter, stories and perspectives, and interactive events.

I was previously the engagement editor for The Seattle Times Education Lab. Before that I worked for the education news organization Chalkbeat as a reporter, director of engagement and director of product. 

I've been published by The Seattle Times, Chalkbeat, PBS NewsHour,, Salon, the Center for Investigative Reporting, the New York Daily News and others. 

I graduated with a bachelor's in journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a master's in business and economics reporting at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism.
