In 2006, I began my journalism career at The Michigan Daily, the flagship, student-run daily newspaper of The University of Michigan.

I worked with Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight on his seminal book, The Signal and the Noise. As his research assistant, I did groundwork on chapters relating to science and technology. I identified interview candidates with whom I coordinated and participated in over 100 interviews all across the United States.
Published in 2012 by Penguin Press, The Signal and the Noise, reached the New York Times bestseller list after its first week in print and was named Amazon's No. 1 Best NonFiction Book for 2012. The Wall Street Journal declared it “one of the ten best books of nonfiction published in 2012.”
I worked on the following books in various capacities, including: research, transcription of sensitive interviews, developmental editing, copy editing, line editing, and providing general moral support.
