Since 2020 I have been fact-checking books, articles, podcasts, and periodicals for brands such as The Verge, Vox, Popular Mechanics, Bicycling, Runner’s World, Marie Claire, and many others. I enjoy delving deeply into niche topics, from the metal scrapping industry to doorbells to steroids, and I’m particularly interested in environmental reporting. I also work in various capacities with Ugly Duckling Presse, World Poetry Books, Nat. Brut, and The Quarterless Review.
