I am currently the political reporter at VTDigger, a nonprofit news site, and Vermont's largest news outlet, where I cover the statehouse, the governor's office and major campaigns. My reporting often focuses on economic issues including budget, tax and labor policy.


I frequently discuss my work, and Vermont politics, on the radio and television including on Vermont Public Radio and Vermont PBS. 


Before I started at VTDigger, I covered crime and local government for The Keene Sentinel, a daily newspaper in New Hampshire.


While in college, I completed internships at news outlets including PBS NewsHour and three NPR affiliate stations. As an intern at WNYC, New York's NPR station, I contributed to an investigative series on how police departments in the city and around the country shield their misconduct records from the public.  The series won several awards including the Sigma Delta Chi Award for Public Service and a Deadline Club award. 


I am a graduate of Tufts University, where I studied English and Media Studies.
