I came on staff at the Reader in the summer of 2016 to cover housing and the courts. Before that I freelanced! My first serious piece of journalism—”Saving Lathrop”—was published in the Reader in 2014. Since then I’ve gotten to profile a quirky judge, an influential lawyer, a controversial social-justice movement, and a complex bureaucracy as well as dig into some archives to uncover forgotten public housing history. Before taking a full-time gig with Chicago’s illustrious free weekly I wrote for area competitors that shall remain unnamed, as well as Broadly, Truthout, The Progressive, In These Times, Jacobin, and Slate.
