I tell stories from Northeast Ohio for WCPN, Cleveland's public radio station. I've also filed stories nationally for NPR, most about the city's crime and policing.

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

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 Innocence Project, online newspaper Honolulu Civil Beat and Cleveland Magazine. Occasionally I tweet.

Cleveland, Ohio, is my home.
