Since 2016, I've taught at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. In that time, I've led courses on narrative writing, short-form writing, and reporting, with a focus on democracy and inequality. During the spring and summer of 2020, I worked with the Investigative Reporting Program as a group leader and editor on Cal's ground-breaking partnership with The New York Timeswhich has led to dozens of students receiving bylines.

 

You can find the Cal site and class list here.

Prior to teaching at Cal, I was a visiting professor at Linfield College in McMinnville, OR. 

 

I've also run weekend narrative writing workshops at the Berkeley Narrative Journalism Conference, moderated a panel in the Dean's Speaker Series in Business and Journalism, and done my best not to embarrass my daughters during Career Day at the local elementary school.
