I’m an author and journalist currently based in Seattle. I’ve written articles for Slate, the New Republic, and the New York Times, among other publications. My book Fastpitch: The Untold History of Softball and the Women Who Made the Game was a finalist for the 2017 PEN/ESPN Award for Literary Sports Writing. I was also a 2016-17 Knight-Wallace Fellow at the University of Michigan.
