I am a copy editor at The New York Times, where I edit the text for articles, videos and other online content. I’ve also worked as a home page producer there.
Before joining The Times, I worked at Bloomberg’s Washington bureau, where I was a web producer at Bloomberg Government, coordinating and packaging daily coverage and special reports. I have also worked at The Spokesman-Review in Spokane, Wash., as a copy editor, online producer and lead online producer for the newspaper’s website.
I graduated with a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri, where I worked as a reporter, assistant city editor and designer at The Missourian, a community newspaper affiliated with the university. After graduating, I published original research on copy editors’ job satisfaction in Newspaper Research Journal based on my master’s project.
I grew up in Seattle, earned my bachelor’s degree at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Ore., and spent a year teaching English in Prague.
Outside of journalism, my passions include hiking, running, home brewing and most anything to do with the natural world. For a while I was into blogging, and you can find artifacts from those days on this site.
