I’m 28 and from southeast Ohio. I earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Ohio University and a master’s degree in politics/philosophy/economics from the Cevro Institute in Prague, Czech Republic.
Currently, I’m a writer/editor for the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal, a higher ed think tank in Raleigh, North Carolina. I’m also co-founder of expatalachians, an Appalachian-focused journalism project, where I write about culture, economics, and politics.
In my spare time, I like to write, hike, cook, listen to bluegrass, and travel.
