Welcome to my site. I'm a Texas-born journalist living and writing in New York City.
I'm a senior reporting fellow at ProPublica, a non-profit investigative newsroom. In 2017, I'm covering voting rights and fair elections. Email me if you know of a place making it harder to vote.
I have written about the failure of nursing regulation in New York, the power of the homeschool lobby, deaths in mental health facilities in Texas, refugee education in Alaska, shifting racial demographics in Portland and more.
