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, MSNBC.com, 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.
