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 Award for outstanding journalism that fosters social and economic justice. I also received the 2017 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. While in the UK, I reported for the Election podcast with David Runciman, looking in part at the rise of right wing politics in Europe.

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