For the past two years I have been working for journalist and historian Garrett Graff, assisting with a range of projects. I was the researcher for the popular podcast Long Shadow: Rise of the American Far-Right, which tells the story of domestic extremism in the US, with episodes on Ruby Ridge, Waco, the Bundys, Oklahoma City, right-wing media in the 90s, the MAGA movement, and Jan 6.
I am also the researcher for the forthcoming book, UFO: The Inside Story of the US Government's Search for Alien Life Here—and Out There. From Simon & Schuster: "From the post-war Project Blue Book to the Pentagon’s modern-day Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, bestselling author and historian Garrett M. Graff presents the first serious narrative history of humanity’s hunt for alien life—including the military and CIA’s secret, decades-long quest to study UFOs."
I spent the 2020 election cycle and much of 2021 working at Media Matters for America as a researcher and analyst. I contributed to large quantitative studies of right-wing media, including Fox News. While there, I was one of the researchers dedicated to covering online media figures and outlets, including Alex Jones and Infowars, Steve Bannon, and various fringe figures. Some of my public work can be found here.
While in school, I worked as a reporter in the state of Vermont, including at the Burlington Free Press and The Addison Independent. My work appeared in USA Today, the Washington Post, and other outlets. I was also the editor-in-chief of the student newspaper at Middlebury College.
