I tell stories from Northeast Ohio for WCPN, Cleveland's public radio station. I've also filed stories nationally for NPR.

But most days, I cover state and regional politics and governance here on the Lake Erie shore.

Lately I've reported on diversity in police forces, the financial blow dealt East Cleveland and the hopes and challenges of people in Cleveland's Cudell neighborhood.

Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism is my alma mater. In college I served as editor-in-chief of North by Northwestern.

I've worked for the Medill Justice Project, online newspaper Honolulu Civil Beat and Cleveland Magazine.

Cleveland, Ohio, is my home.
