About me

I’m an American journalist. I have experience on the ground in Africa, Europe, and the U.S. And I'm deeply interested in dealing with the tangled complexities of politics and culture.

I have experience in traditional newsrooms and in digital editorial settings; the audiences for the publications I have written for cover the spectrum: international, national, regional, and provincial.

I have also moonlighted as a researcher compiling global regulation trackers utilized by regulators in Europe and the US for various industries, including the vaping/cannabis sector and gene-editing technologies.

I have a BA in “Government” from the College of William and Mary.
