Host of Axios Today in Washington, D.C.

Listen to my podcast

I'm the host of Axios Today, a new daily news podcast from Axios. Previously, I was a Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellow at the University of the Michigan, as well as the Founding Host and Executive producer of The 21st, a PRNDI award-winning statewide public radio talk show for Illinois.

I've been a journalist since 2000 for Reuters, The Miami Herald, WBEZ and most recently, Illinois Public Media.

Life Goals: To listen with empathy

Pro tip: I'm better at mixing cakes than stories.
