I’m a journalist for The Appeal writing about issues in the criminal legal system, with a focus on the death penalty, prisons, and jails.

My work has also appeared in Rolling Stone, ProPublica, The Nation, Newsweek, and The Brooklyn Paper, among others.  

I have a B.A. in Religion from Haverford College with a concentration in Peace, Justice, and Human Rights and a Masters in Journalism from The University of Melbourne.

I live in Brooklyn with my cat Rory.
