I'm a journalist in Washington, D.C., and deputy online editor for Sojourners, where I focus on culture, tech, and religion.
My work was featured in The New York Times and has recently appeared in The Atlantic, Pacific Standard, The Washington Post, ThinkProgress, and Books & Culture.
My favorite posture is ethnographer, tracing the evolutions of ideas and rituals through time and place.
As a systems design thinker, I also co-founded Trestles, a service design consultancy for creative economies in DC and Raleigh/Durham, and co-launched Homestage, a DIY house show network in DC.
In 2014, I spoke on collaborative solutions and "Do It Together" design models at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
A collection of my reporting on sexual abuse in Christian communities, "I Believe You: Sexual Violence and the Church," was published the same year (avail on Amazon).
