Writer in Washington, DC

I'm a reporter covering the U.S. Senate. I'm currently a staff writer and the resident procedure guru at Roll Call. In addition to being a frequent guest on C-SPAN, I've been featured on the PBS Newshour, Fox News and MSNBC, as well as nationally-syndicated radio programs. Please feel free to reach out with any booking inquiries.

A stroke survivor, I'm also a proud graduate of Hamilton College in the snow country of upstate New York.

I have degrees in both government and theater, but sometimes I can't tell the difference between the two. Sen. Harry Reid once called me a "bully" with the cameras rolling.
