I'm currently freelancing and actively looking for opportunities to write for new places. I have a bunch of ideas of various sizes that need homes, and I am more than eager to talk to any editor who's looking to strengthen their immigration coverage in 2022 to see how we can collaborate. I am also available for reporting and analysis projects outside the immigration beat (with a preference for stories about policy and the people it affects), depending on the content, outlet, and scope.  There are no dumb questions. Shoot me an email.

If you know something about the immigration system that you think I should know, I'd love to hear it. If you work in the immigration system (or are personally affected by it), I'd love to hear from you — whether or not you think you have something particularly interesting to tell me. I assume every tip I get is confidential unless you and I agree otherwise.
