I write tales of adventure, crime, subcultures, and general weirdness for New York Magazine, Bloomberg Businessweek, The Atavist, The New York Times, Longreads, and other publications.
I’ve filed from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, eastern Ukraine, and a Costco outside Paris. I’m a two-time grant winner from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
