Race, Police, and Poverty I spent several years reporting on the intersection of race, police and poverty in Western North Carolina for The Asheville Citizen-Times with the support of theHarry Frank Guggenheim Foundation. Each year, the Foundation awards 20-30 fellowships to reporters, broadcasters, editors, and writers covering crime and violence in the U.S. so they can attend the annual Harry Frank Guggenheim Symposium on Crime in America to better understand the dynamics of crime, violence, and the U.S. justice system.

Data Reporting I have used data sets big and small throughout my reporting career, most extensively as the social issues reporter at the Asheville Citizen-Times. I wrote several long-form investigative and enterprise pieces centered on publicly available data sets. From municipal contracting and city budgeting to crime stats and federal counts of marginalized groups, the numbers always tell a compelling story. Click here to see my work.
