About Me

Based in Brooklyn, I focus on urban reporting, with special emphasis on data and courthouse reporting. Currently I'm freelancing most days for the New York Daily News. I graduated from the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY in 2018.

In an earlier life, I spent a decade covering video technology. I've been a section editor, a copy editor, and a video/text blogger for various trade magazines.

Now, my New York City–based beats include criminal justice, housing, and the opioid epidemic.
