Reporting Editing Writing Video
I cover Congress, the White House and national politics, currently as an independent reporter for the New York Daily News and other outlets including Kaiser Health News, The Daily Beast, Tarbell, and Now This.
My goal is to explain what is happening in the nation's capital, and to show why it matters and how it affects regular people.
I use all the tools available to modern journalists to gather information -- from data analysis to old-fashioned shoe-leather reporting and observation. I use any method available, from text to video, to tell the tale in the most effective way.
