About

I am a technology researcher and reporter for The Washington Post Technology 202 and Cybersecurity 202 newsletters. Previously, I worked at Mother Jones reporting on disinformation, civil rights at Facebook, and the intersection of tech and labor.

You can find some of my recent clips here. (Please note that while I help write The Technology 202 and Cybersecurity 202, the daily newsletters do not show up on my author page.)

My freelance work can be seen in publications including  BuzzfeedWired, Slate, Esquire, MEL magazine, and Science Magazine.

Outside of work I can be found adoring my cat Reggie and getting my novel ready to send to agents.
