I’m a freelance journalist and researcher based in Oakland, California.

I write investigative news stories and in-depth features. My work has appeared in The Nation, Vice.com, In These Times, Al Jazeera English and other publications. My most recent work can be found at Mission Local, where I reported on everything from campaign finance to San Francisco’s public hospital to the San Francisco Police Department.

My coverage of the San Francisco Police Department was recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists, Northern California in 2018, and my investigation for KALW into tourist rentals in San Francisco received the award for Explanatory Journalism from the Society of Professional Journalists, Northern California in 2014. 

I am an alum of UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, where I focused on investigative and narrative storytelling. I have reported from the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Israel since 2010. More recently I have reported from Mumbai, India, the Eastern Sierras and the Central Valley of California.
