As a reporter, I enjoy covering stories about people, social issues, culture, and the law. I developed a particular interest in public interest journalism after investigating the case against an Illinois death row inmate named Aaron Patterson. I've since written stories that tackle topics ranging from human trafficking, to wrongful convictions, to the connections between public health and the environment.

But I also enjoy telling the unexpected human stories: A billion-dollar trademark infringement case involving Stolichnaya vodka, the mother who lost her son on September 11th and who befriended the mother of an al Qaeda terrorist, the real estate agent who rescued the abandoned archive of famed jazz singer Maxine Sullivan, and the world-renowned butoh dancers who quietly ran a San Francisco sushi restaurant, to name a few.
