I write about pop culture, books, sports, and sometimes, the news. I’ve profiled many authors and celebrities (from Nick Kroll to Taffy Brodesser-Akner to the Telemundo announcer who popularized the "goooooool” call). I also cover women in sports — from dogsledders to tennis to roller derby — and I write explainers on what’s happening in the news, from how the Holocaust motto "Never Again" became a rallying cry for gun control to series of explainers on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. You can see more selected clips here.
I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Dartmouth College, where I received high honors in my History major and was awarded the Peter J. Reichard 1966 Memorial Research Award for best history thesis. You can read more about my thesis and research here.
Some assorted fun facts: I am the type of person who keeps read receipts on my texts. I would totally be in Hufflepuff, even though I strongly identify with Hermione Granger. I won my summer camp’s spirit award in 2007. I am a professionally certified ski instructor. I have watched Mamma Mia too many times to count.
