I cover politics for The Keene Sentinel in New Hampshire, writing across genres on the Granite State’s first-in-the-nation primaries heading into 2020, along with state and local political offices. Before that, I was living in Paris on a fellowship, teaching at Lycée International de l'Est Parisien and freelancing. I've also worked at The Daily Gazette as their breaking news and Saratoga County reporter, POLITICO as a breaking news and White House intern, The New Yorker as Mark Singer's assistant, the Albany Times Union as a metro intern, and as editor-in-chief of The Wesleyan Argus and Arcadia Political Magazine, Wesleyan University's student paper and political review, respectively.
I have worked as an assistant and fact checker at The New Yorker under the guidance of Mark Singer, who has been a staff writer at the magazine for over 40 years. My most significant work for Singer came in his 2016 book Trump and Me, where I did research and fact checking on the past statements of the 45th President before and during the campaign.
I recently graduated with honors from Wesleyan University, where I majored in the College of Letters (history, literature, philosophy, and French) and wrote a senior honors thesis entitled "The Forbidden Genre: The Evolution of the Psychiatric Memoir and the Narrativity of Madness" under the tutelage of my thesis adviser, best-selling author Charles Barber.
Over the summer of 2016, I interned as a reporter covering breaking news, local politics, and culture at the Albany Times Union.
After graduating from Wesleyan in the spring of 2017, I interned at POLITICO in Washington, D.C. on the breaking news and White House teams. Aside from covering the latest stories in the 24 hour news cycle, I pitched and wrote features on the Trump White House and national politics beyond the beltway, such as in Alabama, where grassroots Republicans agonized over their favorite president attacking their favorite senator and attorney general.
Once the internship was over, I lived in Paris on a visa to teach English at Lycée International de l’Est Parisien while freelancing and writing for my blog.
In May of 2018, after my visa expired, I started my first full time reporting job at The Daily Gazette in Schenectady, New York as the paper’s breaking news reporter. I covered local courts, politics, and human interest stories, along with Saratoga County.
In October of 2018, I arrived at The Keene Sentinel as the politics reporter, leading coverage of the midterms and the 2020 primaries.
I also served as the Editor-in-Chief of The Wesleyan Argus, Wesleyan University's student newspaper, introducing live video, and increased web-first content to the oldest twice-weekly college paper in the country (est. 1868).
Prior to that, I worked as Editor-in-Chief of Wesleyan's political review, Arcadia Political Magazine, as well as EIC for my high school paper, The Academy Road, at The Albany Academy.
