I’m a reporter from San Francisco. My writing mainly focuses on labor, though I’ve covered everything from gentrification to climate to the Deep State. My work has been published in The American Prospect, The New Republic, Curbed, SF Weekly, Strikewave, and others. I’ve interned or worked at Roads & Kingdoms, The American Prospect, and FCW. In June 2021, I’ll be joining The Bangor Daily News in Maine as a city desk reporter.

Stuff I’ve written:

  • How gig companies exploit loopholes in labor law to avoid giving their workers benefits or covering them during accidents on the job, for Defector;

  • The NewsGuild-CWA’s successes in unionizing newsrooms during COVID, for Strikewave;

  • The future of work under the gig economy, for The New Republic;

  • Why we flocked to a cartoon video game during the early days of shelter-in-place orders, for Curbed;

  • Why the 2018 Camp Fire was emblematic of the inequities of housing and climate change facing California, for The Baffler.

I use this newsletter to occasionally plug my writing and write about other things that interest me, from politics and current events to labor news, and other things that interest me.
