I’m executive editor at TIME magazine’s student edition, TIME for Kids. My writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Washingtonian, and on BuzzFeed, NPR, and The Marshall Project, among other places. I write on a range of topics, including criminal justice, education, food, arts and culture, and health. The Washington Post included one of my pieces on its list of 10 BuzzFeed stories the company should turn into feature films.
I taught elementary school for seven years and hold master’s degrees from Bank Street College of Education and Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where I was awarded the Lynton Book Writing Fellowship. I live in Brooklyn, New York.
I’m also a four-time Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting grantee. Go here for work on children of incarcerated parents; here and here for stories about children and the refugee crisis; and here for stories about kids and migration.
