I’m a journalist and writer stationed in Washington, D.C. I currently work as a reporter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, covering national politics, policy and economic issues affecting Western Pennsylvania and Appalachia.
Here and elsewhere, I’ve written a wide range of stories and essays on: the Americans trying to invest in Pakistan; the race to reinvent the electric grid in India; the quandary facing coal towns in the 21st century; the identity crisis of ethnic Russians living in Estonia; mental health in a homeless shelter in South Florida; the restoration of an historic African-American cemetery in Memphis; Washington State’s most devastating wildfire.
I spend my days off: coffee, trail running, playing guitar, trying something new in the kitchen, trying something new at the bar.
