A freelance journalist based in Michigan, I write about cities, the environment, history, art and education—but whatever the topic, I'm a sucker for a wild story or an original idea. I've explored the rhetorical implications of "invasive" species, the big data case for urban agriculture,  water crisis jobs in Flint, and the argument for salary transparency (among other projects). My writing has appeared in Smithsonian, CityLab, Boston MagazineThe Boston Globe, Nature Conservancy and several alumni magazines.
