I'm a staff writer with ESPN's Grantland.com.
I've also written for The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and ESPN: The Magazine, among others.
I wrote "The Defender: Manute Bol's journey from Sudan to the NBA and back again," a multimedia ebook published by The Atavist. It's available on the Kindle, as well as for the iPhone and iPad. The Wall Street Journal reviewed it here, and SI.com excerpted it here.
I've twice been named a finalist for the Livingston Award For Young Journalists, in 2011 for The Defender and in 2013 for my Grantland story "A Death in Valdosta."
I've reported in Sudan, Ivory Coast, India, Israel, and Cameroon, as well as throughout the U.S. and Europe. I graduated from UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism in May of 2010. I currently live in Nashville, Tennessee.
