Scroll down to learn more about me and my work.
On November 13th, I start at Vox as Senior Politics Reporter. In addition, I've written for publications like the New York Times, the Washington Post, ESPN and The Ringer. I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and attended the University of Michigan before moving to St. Louis to work for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. I've spent the past seven years in Washington, and in February 2016, I joined the team at MTV News, where I covered the 2016 election by examining the Republican Party and the American right wing in depth.
I've also written about college football for Every Day Should Be Saturday and covered the NFL for SBNation.
