Writer + Editor

About

STORIES, NOT CONTENT

I spent the first 10 years of my journalism career as a staff writer and editor for publications including The Chicago Tribune, Washingtonian Magazine and Time Out Chicago, back when it was a weekly magazine that ran substantial features like this and this. In 2017, I left my role as a deputy editor at the Tribune to go full-time freelance. 

My range is diverse: I've covered everything from science to travel to politics to pop culture. Print or digital? I've worked extensively in both and will happily tackle either, but no clickbait, please; one of my missions is to increase the quality of journalism online.
