I’m a reporter for the The Wall Street Journal in New York.
I previously worked for the AP as a legislative relief reporter and for the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism as a data journalist. Before that, I spent a summer interning with the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporting team of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, where I broke the story of an inmate dying of dehydration in Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr.’s jail. I’ve also written for PolitiFact Wisconsin, interned with The Progressive magazine and was part of #ONA16’s student newsroom in Denver.
Before becoming a journalist, I worked as a CPA and auditor at PwC in New York and Boston. I have graduate degrees in journalism and business from the University of Wisconsin and a bachelor’s degree from its business school.
I’m an enthusiastic member of Investigative Reporters and Editors, the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, the Society of Professional Journalists and the Online News Association and learned a lot at Boston’s GrubStreet writing center. I also collect quotes.
