About me

I’m an investigative reporter at The Marshall Project, where I report on the criminal justice system, and am finishing up a book about the failures of America’s addiction treatment system for Simon & Schuster. If you have tips, information, or a story to share, please get in touch.

Prior to The Marshall Project, I was a senior reporter at Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting, where I reported on the criminalization of pregnancy, public health and criminal justice. You can read some of my previous work here.

My investigative reporting has inspired new laws, class action lawsuits, and criminal investigations. My work has appeared in The New York Times, on NPR, CNN, and in newspapers across the country. I’ve also shared in and won the IRE medal, the Livingston Award for National Reporting, a National Murrow Award, the Loeb Award, the Knight Award for Public Service, multiple Sigma Delta Chi awards, and have been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Selden Ring and National Magazine Awards. My podcast series with Reveal, called American Rehab, prompted a congressional investigation and was named one of the best podcasts of 2020 by The New Yorker, The Atlantic and Spotify.
