The opinion pages are crucial for our democracy.

There's never a definitive answer a writer can give when posed the question, "why do you write?"

For the readers;
For oneself;
For when words on a page are the only way you can express yourself. 

For the absolute love of writing.

But, for me, there's one other fundamental: The opinion pages are crucial for our democracy. Diverse views in commentary make differing ideas accessible, creating a more informed, contributing, and successful populace.

My mission is to connect people with new perspectives and ideas.

I am passionate about policy, especially focused on social and economic justice and climate.

Originally from Auckland, New Zealand, I work in public opinion research and politics in Washington, D.C.
