Hi! I grew up in New York City, and graduated from Georgetown University in 2005. From June of 2005 until September of 2007, I worked in Washington, DC for Rep. Louise M. Slaughter and the House Committee on Rules as a press and communications staffer. I then joined the Obama for America campaign as a field organizer. I worked in Iowa for three months, primarily focusing on high school outreach in towns around the state. After the caucus on January 3rd, 2008, I campaigned for Obama in Utah, Texas, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Montana, and Ohio. In May of 2009, I joined the staff of Media Matters for America, where I was a writer and media analyst until May of 2010, at which point I left the organization and moved to Chicago, IL to pursue journalism. I was an intern at the Chicago Reader from September until December, 2010, and subsequently contributed a few small freelance blog posts and pieces to that paper. I'm currently enrolled at Medill.
