I’m a reporter, writer, and radio producer. I like stories that live on the nervy boundaries between the individual and the collective, the personal and the political, the built and the natural. Some days, I'm the faded mural on a North Philadelphia rowhome that reads, “Working together we can save our community.” Other days, I'm the scrawl of graffiti beneath it: “Who cares???”
I'm based in Philadelphia, where I do a lot of work with WHYY. My work in print, radio, and photo journalism has also appeared at PRI’s The World, BBC, Here and Now, Next City, PlanPhilly, Out There, Philadelphia Magazine, High Country News, Roads and Kingdoms, and the Anchorage Press, among others.
