I’m Alex. I’m also a enterprising reporter and generally curious human being located in Washington, D.C. My lens is usually focused on social issues in city settings. Currently, I’m a health reporter at ThinkProgress.

While I currently boast a fancy address, I grew up among the Redwoods in the tiny coastal town of Arcata, tucked away in Northern California’s Humboldt County, and graduated with a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Oregon in 2011. I lived and worked in Portland, Oregon until 2015.

My previous work can be found in the Washington City PaperPortland Mercury, Street Roots, Street SensePortland Monthly, East Oregonian & Bitch Magazine.

When I’m not behind a computer or notepad, I can usually be found outside on a bike, in the woods, or doing crosswords in a park. I also contribute my time to Street Sense as a volunteer reporter and editor.

Thank you for visiting my online portfolio.
