I’m originally from Chicago and am currently based out of my hometown. Right now I’m an assistant editor at In These Times magazine but my reporting also appears in the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Reader, Chicago Magazine, 90 Days, 90 Voices and City Bureau.
I was also a researcher on the Chicago Reporter’s “Settling 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.
