I’m a freelance journalist and investigative reporter.
My focus areas include:
- technology, with an emphasis on privacy and security, digital freedom, hacking, and mass surveillance.
- health and fitness, ranging from nutrition to exercise science and even combat sports.
- business, often relating to entrepreneurship, freelancing, and marketing.
I’ve written for Ars Technica, WIRED, Motherboard, Slate, Experience Life, Sherdog, Men’s Journal, and many other publications and websites.
I am the managing editor of Performance Menu, the monthly magazine of Catalyst Athletics.
I always hope that my work will help create change in some small way by making complex topics accessible, exposing corruption, or highlighting projects that are making a difference in the world.
To that end, I’ve taught workshops on privacy and security, storytelling, social media marketing, breaking into freelancing, and more.
I got my degree in Illinois at Shimer College, the best worst school, where we sat around octagonal tables discussing/debating classic literature and philosophy.
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, cooking, gardening, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and spending time with my husband and our adorable puppy.
