I’m a writer, editor and data analyst based in New York covering politics, tech policy and the media business. I specialize in the online propaganda beat, botnets, sock puppets and blackhat SEO.
I’m a web culture nerd with a background in literature, history, philosophy, economics and statistics.
My work has appeared in the Columbia Journalism Review, FiveThirtyEight, Vox.com, The Real Deal, WNYC, Journal of International Affairs, the Jewish Daily Forward, the Times of Israel, Gothamist, and elsewhere. (Clips here)
I was data reporter at The Real Deal, covering New York City’s real estate industry. I was a production intern at NPR’s On the Media. I studied international affairs with an economic policy emphasis at Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs and was editor-in-chief of its school paper, the Morningside Post.
Founder of The Opposite of Post-truth, a weekly newsletter covering media and political disinformation and of I Have Good News and Bad News, a thrice-weekly U.S. politics headline newsletter.
