I’m an editor/staff reporter at Truthout, and have been covering social justice issues since 2009.
Before I came to Truthout I was a contract editor/environmental reporter at Generation Progress, an editorial intern at In These Times magazine and co-host of a Dallas-based progressive talk radio program.
My work has also appeared in several other publications, including The Nation, The Texas Observer, Salon, Rewire.News, YES! Magazine and Earth Island Journal, as well as in Truthout‘s first anthology on police violence, Who Do You Serve, Who Do You Protect?, published by Haymarket Books in 2016.
With my partner, I wrote and produced our feature-length documentary, Don’t Frack With Denton, which chronicles how our hometown became the first city to ban fracking in Texas, and its subsequent overturn in the state legislature. I was honored to receive two awards from the San Francisco Press Club in November, and the Dallas Peace and Justice Center’s annual journalism award in December of 2016.
