I am a staff writer at The Marshall Project, a nonprofit news organization dedicated to covering the criminal justice system. Until I joined the Marshall Project in 2014, I was a freelance writer specializing in long-form and narrative journalism. I covered a wide range of subjects, but had a particular interest in the criminal justice system, prisons and jails, issues affecting the LGBTQ community, and health care for the underserved and disenfranchised—particularly substance use, addiction, and HIV/AIDS. This site is an archive of my freelance work.
