I'm a  journalist, writer, and editor.

I have written for The New Yorker, GQ, Newsweek, The Atlantic, and many other publications. In 2016, I was the recipient of two awards from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers for my coverage of the United States prison system. The judges remarked that the investigative series was "recommended reading for journalism students, and the pros as well."

In 2015, I founded a creative writing program at Getting Out, Staying Out, a non-profit in New York that assists recently-incarcerated young men. 

I split my time between Los Angeles and New York.
