writing about economic inequality
I'm a Pittsburgh-based writer and researcher on social policy, poverty, and inequality. My work has appeared in The American Prospect, The Progressive, Capital & Main, The New Republic, Ms. Magazine, The Nation, In These Times, The Guardian, Bolts, The Week, Pacific Standard, Quartz, Waging Nonviolence, Bridge Detroit, Newsweek, and more.
I'm originally from a small town in the Deep South, where I grew up writing stories and developing a deep love of tomato mayo sandwiches. I have a master's in public policy from the University of Michigan.
