Hello! I’m a journalist covering how technology influences culture and equality.  I come from a working-class background and am passionate about reporting on the “future for the rest of us.”

I currently cover the technology and politics beat for Mother Jones in D.C.. My freelance work can be seen in publications including  BuzzfeedWired, Slate, Esquire, MEL magazine, and Science Magazine.

I also write an almanac for millennials. You can check it out here:
