I'm the Gulf Coast Correspondent for Southerly, covering ecology, justice and culture from Texas to Florida.
I'm also a freelance journalist with experience reporting on a wide range of issues facing communities across the American South. I've written about everything from refugee resettlement in Georgia to how Airbnb fuels gentrification in New Orleans to malpractices at ICE detention centers across the Southeast.
I write essays, too, most often about my Jewish family history in the South.
I grew up in Atlanta and earned a BA in English with a Creative Writing concentration from Bowdoin College in 2018. I currently live in New Orleans.
