Subscribe to my mailing list to learn about my latest stories when they're published.

I am a journalist covering environment and health for The Intercept. I’m also a fellow at the Investigative Fund. I've written about lots of things, including perfluorinated chemicals, an environmentalist who was sent to prison, a pesticide that should have been banned, and a community that faces the highest risk of cancer from air pollution in the country. Whatever they're about, my favorite stories show how we've gotten into the mess we're in—and sometimes even how to get out of it.
