I'm now covering the California economy for the Los Angeles Times, living in beautiful, strange Los Angeles.
Just before, you know, blazing a trail out west, I wrote about student debt and higher education for Bloomberg, for two years.
Before that, I worked at the New York Times, as an editorial assistant to Nick Kristof and Charles Blow. I also wrote a range of stories for the paper during those two years, and landed on the front page and several section fronts.
The first job I had after graduating from Princeton in 2011 was as a research associate at the Council on Foreign Relations, working on Latin America.
