politics. science. travel. coffee.
As a political junkie, I feel lucky that I've been able to cover government at all levels, from New England town meetings to the U.S. Congress.
In 2012, I was a Washington, D.C. correspondent covering Congress and the Democratic National Convention for The Day, a newspaper in eastern Connecticut.
Back in New England, I covered four municipalities and the 2014 congressional election.
In 2015, I moved west and reported from the Utah statehouse for The Associated Press.
But I'm not only interested in politics. I majored in biology, married an engineer, and am always looking for an opportunity to write about science.
Journalism has led me to unusual places: I've found myself aboard a 173-year-old whaling ship, meeting a baby orangutan in a zoo, sitting next to ranchers in a court room, tasting foraged mushrooms, and discussing conspiracy theories about mountain lions in a diner.
I'm currently in Phoenix, Arizona, where I work with content from 13 states as a news associate on AP's West Desk.
I'm always looking for a new story. Contact me using the links to the right.
