I first started telling stories as a ballet and modern dancer, performing with companies in Minneapolis and New York.
Now, I’m telling them through audio. I’ve reported on everything from the security of America’s election voting machines to the history of how the rainbow flag became a social and political symbol; from the economics of Amazon packaging to the history of Canada as a place of political refuge.
Currently, I produce The Argument, a political podcast for The New York Times. I also teach audio journalism at my alma mater, Columbia Journalism School.
My first journalism job was writing about ballet, modern dance and Broadway at Dance Magazine.
