I'm an occasional writer, former White House intern, and graduate of Yale University. In 2011 I was a Clinton Foundation fellow at the American University in Dubai and a summer consultant at Monitor in Saudi Arabia. In 2012 I worked as a summer analyst at JP Morgan's Global Investment Opportunities Group in New York.
At Howey Politics Indiana, I led an investigation that uncovered hundreds of election law violations by two presidential campaigns - prompting the appointment of a special prosecutor and leading to the convictions of four co-conspirators. My writing has earned links from The Page, Firedoglake, and POLITICO, and a blog I wrote was called "one of the best and most viewed sites on Indiana politics." I've made multiple appearances on the Fox News Channel and Lou Dobbs Tonight.
Previously I won a public access lawsuit against my hometown and earned a national Sunshine Award from the Society of Professional Journalists for making "important contributions in the continuing fight for open government."
I graduated Salutatorian from Western High School as a National Merit Scholar, a national Coca-Cola Scholar, a Chrysler Foundation Scholar, a Robert C. Byrd Memorial Scholar, and an Indiana Elks Scholar.
