Work

My most recent work for Mother Jones can be found here.

Some highlights:

I spent eight months investigating working conditions at Amazon’s warehouses and uncovered ongoing OSHA violations.

My story about the impact of the Trump administration’s gutting of the Lifeline program for domestic violence victims was shared by over a dozen members of Congress during Lifeline Awareness Week.

My investigation into how private prison technology companies are price gouging inmates (this required extensive government document research and interviewing inmates, which can be logistically challenging).

For my story on FCC oversight, I obtained exclusive FOIAs from American Oversight discussing conflicts of interest with AT&T.

I was the first reporter to cover Facebook’s civil rights audit after the Definers incident. Less than a week later, Facebook announced that the audit would be released.
