I am a writer living in Los Angeles. I cover politics, gender, and culture.
I currently work as a contributing opinion writer and assistant digital editor at the Los Angeles Times.
My writing has also appeared in the Washington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, The Nation, Town & Country, U.S. News & World Report, VICE, The Daily Beast, The Verge, Refinery29, Pacific Standard, San Francisco Magazine, The Rumpus, and The Hairpin (RIP). I've worked as a contributing editor at The Morning News and the interviews editor at The Rumpus.
I studied political theory and Africana studies at the University of Virginia, took a master's in journalism from UC Berkeley, and did research in Rwanda as a Fulbright scholar. Prior to becoming a journalist, I worked at the Save Darfur Coalition, the Open Society Foundations' Africa Office, and the Google Creative Lab.
