What I do



I am the author of the book The Revolution of Robert Kennedy: From Power to Protest After JFK, published by Bloomsbury  on June 13, 2017.

I am represented by Robert Guinsler at Sterling Lord Literistic.


TV News Producer

As a television news producer, I have helped produce dozens of interviews with newsmakers. Questions I crafted were put to nearly every major presidential candidate in the 2016 election, leading to notable exchanges with President Donald Trump and Secretary Hillary Clinton. I also made several viral videos on a tight overnight deadline, including mashups of Melania Trump's and Michelle Obama's convention speeches and a Hillary Clinton/James Comey fact check.


I have written many stories online, and some in print. My myth-busting viral opus about George Romney for BuzzFeed was labeled Highbrow/Brilliant by New York magazine's "Approval Matrix." Writing at Esquire's "The Politics Blog" in 2010, I was the only one to suggest the feds had not proved their case against disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. (They got him in a re-trial.)
