I am an Associate Politics Editor at the Huffington Post in Washington, D.C.
I cover national politics in the broadest sense, writing on subjects as varied as national security, climate change and my native Massachusetts.
Proficient in Russian, I returned to Moscow in December 2012 as part of the Russia-U.S. Journalist Exchange organized by the Knight Foundation and the International Center for Journalists.
Prior to coming to the Huffington Post, I worked as a reporter covering campaigns and elections for The American Independent, part of the network of sites that included The Washington Independent.
I have appeared on MSNBC, Current TV and BBC Radio, and frequently discuss my stories on HuffPost Live.
Originally from the Boston suburbs by way of Claremont McKenna College in Southern California, I have lived in Washington since 2010.
