I’m a reporter for Crain’s New York Business covering city politics and government. My recent work has focused on issues of construction safety and homelessness

I previously covered neighborhood news at DNAinfo, where I published an influential series of stories on medical care at city jails. I have also written for The Nation and VICE, among others.

At CUNY’s Graduate School of Journalism, I received the Dennis Duggan Prize for coverage of “ordinary or disenfranchised New Yorkers” and the Sidney Hillman Foundation Award for Social Justice Reporting.

 I keep my best stories catalogued on Contently.
