about me

I am an investigative reporter for the Southern Poverty Law Center, where I cover civil rights violations in the South. Here, I have written about the poultry industry, use of force by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, civil asset forfeiture and prison health care. Prior to moving to Montgomery in 2016, I was an investigative reporter in Washington, D.C. covering the congressional delegation from Texas and money-in-politics. 

Reports under my byline have led to two Ethics Committee investigations involving misconduct by 11 members of Congress. They also led to the federal conviction of a former congressman on nearly two-dozen corruption charges. I graduated from the University of Alabama in 2013 and was editor-in-chief of the Crimson White from 2012 to 2013.
