I'm a reporter for The Boston Globe covering "things that work," data-driven stories, and other news.

I've also covered beats on higher education, Boston neighborhoods, business and transportation.


Before joining the Globe, I interned with The Christian Science Monitor – one of five newspapers I've worked for.

During college, I worked as a co-op for six months at the Globe's West bureau.

I also interned at The Daily Hampshire Gazette and at The Sun Chronicle, where my newspaper writing began.

I majored in journalism and earned a BBA in marketing from UMass Amherst, where I was managing editor of The Daily Collegian.
