I'm a journalist currently based in DC, where I'm on staff at Smithsonian Magazine
and produce freelance short audio pieces in my free time. I previously wrote and edited articles for the global section at The Atlantic
. Before my move to the East Coast, I grew up and lived in Los Angeles—home to the world's best doughnuts and worst traffic.
I have also interned for the editorial departments at Slate
and Ms. Magazine
, researched U.S. voting rights at the Brennan Center for Justice
in NY, ran online and digital communications for the World Affairs Council of Northern California
, and tracked anti-abortion extremists for the Feminist Majority Foundation's
National Clinic Access Project.
While earning a Bachelor's degree in American Studies at Wellesley College, I hosted my own radio show on WZLY, and wrote a thesis on feminism in the digital age. I've also studied at the University of Cambridge, where I took coursework in the Politics and International Studies department and wrote a dissertation on postmodern feminist perspectives in Conflict & Peacebuilding.
