I am a journalist, documentary producer, and contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine, based in Toronto and New York. I'm also a Fellow at New America. I mostly report on ethics and medicine.
My most recent article, published in The New York Times Magazine, is about a legal fight involving dementia. It asks: when does a person with dementia lose the ability, and then perhaps the right, to decide for herself? (Read: The Mother Who Changed).
My story “What Happened in Room 10?” won a George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting in 2021. It is the product of a months-long investigation into the first COVID outbreak in an American nursing home — and, more broadly, the rise of the for-profit nursing home industry in America. The article also won the John Bartlow Martin Award for Public Interest Journalism and the MOLLY Prize for Investigative Journalism, and was a finalist for the National Magazine Award in Feature Writing.
Previously, I worked as a documentary film correspondent and on-air producer at NBC News. I made short documentaries from across the United States and abroad. And I appeared on The Today Show, NBC Nightly News and MSNBC.
Before that, I was as a foreign correspondent for VICE News, based in London, and Europe reporter for Maclean's, Canada's largest news magazine. I won a Canada National Magazine Award for my coverage of Ukraine's Euromaidan revolution. In a former life, I was a graduate student of History and Philosophy at Oxford University.
