I’m a general assignment reporter for Marketplace from American Public Media. I report on business news, the global economy, and the wider events linked to the financial markets.

I joined the Marketplace team from WHYY’s Keystone Crossroads, where I reported on housing, economic development, pension reform, and other issues affecting Pennsylvania cities.

I pride myself on my ability to make conversation with anyone/anything (including goats).

Before WHYY, I was an editor at CFO magazine, where I wrote about topics like crowdfunding and venture capital, corporate tax reform, and IPOs.

I graduated from Brown University in 2010. While in school, I wrote for The Brown Daily Herald and reported radio pieces on national and local issues for WBRU-FM in Providence.
