I am a watchdog reporter for the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, part of the USA Today Network. I focus on data-driven stories in Rochester and for other Gannett papers across the state, and participate in national projects with the USA Today investigations team. I oversee NYDatabases.com, a collection of databases and interactives for Gannett newspapers across the state. Prior to joining the D&C, I was a sports reporter and columnist for the New York Sun. I currently serve as President of the Rochester Newspaper Guild, the union that represents the reporters, photographers, copy editors, digital producers and other newsroom employees in Rochester.
