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, This American Life, The Guardian, Harper's, The Independent and others. My story Below Deck was a finalist for a 2018 National Magazine Award in the Reporting category. I am a 2018 Livingston Award finalist, and 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, in 2017.
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.
