I’m a journalist at WBUR, Boston’s NPR news station. Through my reporting, I try to illuminate the people, businesses, ideas, and trends that shape the region’s many economies.
Have a question, story, or tip you’d like me to look into? Here are a few ways to get in touch.
I joined WBUR News in 2019. Before that, I worked for WCPN in Cleveland and WNYC in New York. I’m a regular contributor to American Public Media’s Marketplace, and my reporting has also aired on NPR and Planet Money.
Since making a left-turn from a career in law to one in journalism, I have reported on why the Chinese sunk money into American softball, why risky land contracts came back after the housing bubble, and how anxiety over mass shootings fed the school security industry. I’ve have also explored how a small Ohio dairy became a Japanese retail giant, covered protests in Hong Kong and sprinted through the freezing streets of Chicago to capture ‘speed dating for economists.’
I have a law degree from the University of Maryland School of Law, and have worked as a law clerk at the Baltimore Public Defender, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore City Circuit Court, and U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland.
