I am a freelance reporter specializing in housing, mortgage finance and real estate development. (Got a news tip or story idea? Contact me here.) I am a regular contributor to The New YorkTimes Real Estate and Business sections, and wrote the weekly Mortgages column from 2012-2015. My work has been featured widely in other major publications and outlets, including The Boston Globe Magazine, More, Salon, CNBC.com, National Post, and many more.
In 2014, the National Association of Real Estate Editors recognized Snob Zones with two honors: the Bruss Silver Award and the Best First-Time Author Award. I have been interviewed about the book on American Public Media's Marketplace program and National Public Radio's On Point with Tom Ashbrook.
A proud native of New Hampshire, I have lived in the New York City area for nearly two decades. When I'm not on the phone or at my laptop, I'm likely to be hanging with family and friends; goofing around with my dog; out running a few miles; hunkered down with books, magazines and newspapers (the paper kind); on my mat at Yoga for Everybody; binge-watching the next series on my ridiculously long list; or, on a really good day, taking in some live music.
