I report on large bankruptcies for Debtwire. Previously I spent four years on the beat for Leveraged Commentary & Data, a newswire out of S&P Capital IQ. Before that, I was the news editor for, edited the site's international coverage, and helmed Legal Blog Watch. I drink a lot of coffee. I have a Master's in French Studies. C'est normal.

My writing - about law, business, technology, music, books - has also appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Wired, The American Lawyer, The NYU Alumni Magazine, and The Daily Texan.
