I went to college in Washington, D.C., intending to be a political journalist as a public service. After semesters at The Washington Post and an NPR station, I became disillusioned with the partisan, often superficial atmosphere. After graduating in 2008, I decided I could do more good at the grassroots level and took a communications job with a non-profit. My real job funds my cycling habit and enables me to do some freelance writing. That seems a bit backward, doesn’t it? (Older pieces are under my maiden name, Stump.)
