Right now, I work for The Tor Project, a non-profit which advances free speech and human rights by developing free anonymity software you can trust.
Previously, I edited & wrote for Washington Square News, NYU's official student paper, and interned at Freedom of the Press Foundation.

I've written for Washington Square News since September 2013; click here to see almost all of my work there.
When I was 16, I self-published a 20,000-word series of essays on growing up with a physical disability. I include them for the sake of completeness, and you can read them here.
