Work

I’ve worked primarily as an editor since 2012, but I still write stories when I can. My career as a writer has included reporting on education and politics at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, writing about business for The Daily Herald, curating a popular blog about culture for seattlepi.com and investigating listener-submitted questions* for KUOW in Seattle. Here’s a brief sample of my work.

*My favorite one was about pink slime.
