I’m a journalist based between Baltimore and Washington. These days I’m covering Islam and Muslims, but I generally write about underrepresented communities, digital culture and innovations in tech.
My reporting and essays have been published by The Washington Post, USA Today, Sojourners, Religion News Service, Muftah and American Journalism Review, among others. Sometimes I do social media, data viz, graphics and web design, too, so if you want you can call me a digital journalist.
I study multiplatform journalism and Middle Eastern affairs at the University of Maryland. There, I run Plex, an independent, award-winning student news site highlighting diversity and activism. We’re renovating, so please pardon the dust.
I spent more than a year editing the culture and tech vertical at The Tempest, a cool media venture run by minority women. In my spare time, you’ll find me YouTubing old standup comedy specials or trying valiantly to learn Python.
