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.
