I am a reporter at WYPR, Baltimore’s public radio station. I technically cover Maryland state politics and government, but I frequently report on topics outside of my beat. My work spans breaking news and enterprise stories, for both radio and web.

I have worked across different types of media — newspapers, web and radio — and covered a range of topics. I especially love mining SQL- or Excel-based datasets for stories. My reporting has won awards and led to FBI investigations.

My work has appeared on NPR, on CNN.com, on NBCNews.com, in Slate, in The Huffington Post, in Time, in The Post and Courier and in Washington City Paper.

I grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta and went to college at the University of Pennsylvania, where I led The Daily Pennsylvanian. Since college, I have lived in Washington, D.C., where I also received my master’s in journalism at American University, and Baltimore, where I am now.

If you follow me on Twitter, you may know that I have two dogs, Brooks (named for Orioles hall-of-famer Brooks Robinson) and Bueller (named for Ferris Bueller, who he seems in many ways to emulate).
