About Me

I’m originally from Chicago and am currently based out of my hometown. My reporting has appeared in In These Times magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Reader, Chicago Magazine, 90 Days, 90 Voices and City Bureau. Currently I’m the guest editor for the Envisioning Justice residency at Sixty Inches From Center.

I was also a researcher on the Chicago Reporter’sSettling for Misconduct” interactive database. This investigative project created an easy to navigate, searchable database showing where, how and when police misconduct happens in the city of Chicago.

This database was cited by the United States Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division in its 2017 report on the Chicago Police Department because, “Until the Chicago Reporter created its database…little information about these settlements was publicly available.” I was a 2017 Peter Lisagor Watchdog Award finalist for my work on this database.
