I'm a journalist in Madison, Wisconsin, writing about interesting ideas, animals, people, and culture. I write and edit features, book reviews, news, and other stories for Harvard Magazine. Before that, I wrote for the editorial boards of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and The Toledo Blade and edited the opinion page of The Harvard Crimson.
I dance bhangra and Bollywood, but not very well; please assign me a story about it instead!
