I'm a journalist in the US writing on inequality, how social policy is experienced, and the ways that work is changing.  I'm a contributing writer for The California Sunday Magazine. I used to freelance in Thailand and the UK, and my writing has appeared in The California Sunday Magazine, The Guardian, Harper's, The Independent, VICE, Politico, and others. In 2017, I received the Sidney Hillman Foundation's Sidney Award and the Martha Coman Front Page Award for Best New Journalist, presented by the Newswomen's Club of New York. 

I received my B.A. from Princeton University and a Masters in Public Policy from Cambridge University as a Gates Scholar. 

I also edit book manuscripts on the side. Sometimes, I cut hair.
