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 lead poisoning in Cleveland-area neighborhoods, diversity in police forces, 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.
