I write about criminal justice, activism, race, music, business, queer culture, and gender for Harper's, NPR, The Believer, Mother Jones, New York, Vice, Hazlitt, and BuzzFeed.

For my 2014 report on police relations with the transgender community, I received the I.F. Stone Award from the Nation Institute and a grant from the Fund for Investigative Journalism. In addition to my written work, I’ve done audio reporting for KCRW’s The Organist and Life of the Law. An article I wrote about surfer Eddie Aikau was included in the 2013 Best American Sports Writing anthology and my essay on music for funeral homes was featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered.”

I’ve worked at Mother Jones magazine, been a Google Journalism Fellow at Investigative Reporters and Editors, and I’m currently writing a book about New York City drag performers that will be published by Simon and Schuster.
