I never thought I would be without a job after working 9+ hrs a day, 5 to sometimes 6 days a week without complaint, covering or subbing in constantly when asked, making myself available to people before 8am and after 5pm and otherwise kicking ass every day BUT here we are.
I want to cover Washington because I love it, love the beat and love the people. I love the work. The glory is not my concern. I have resources and contacts and a deep well of enthusiasm to write the news. I am taking freelance work but I need a full time job and I am applying.
So, if you know of someone/somewhere that needs a reporter that will work tirelessly, cares about the work, thinks journalism is a public service AND that suggested workplace is a fair environment free of abuse or discrimination, I would LOVE to throw my hat in the ring.
I have a wealth of resources and contacts regarding the Jan 6 commission and would love to work for a masthead that wants to take advantage of this.

Last night I came home after errands etc. and noticed I was still super winded and my cough went from annoying to painful. Then I got real, real tired and felt like I was going to pass out. Laid down for an hour and tested oxygen levels with an oximeter...
Levels were *not* healthy. I consulted a telemed doctor who promptly told me to get myself to an urgent care because I might have "happy hypoxia"... basically running sound seeming fine but in fact not fully oxygenated. That or pneumonia. I went to the urgent care. Turns out...
It is bronchitis. And "probably pneumonia" but chest xrays results don't come back until later today.

So! Despite all my best efforts to get healthy, my flu has now turned into this bronchial/pneumonia mess.

Sigh. (wheeze, actually)

So, please bear w/me folks as I recover.

Before I embark on whatever it is that comes next in my career, I have pulled together some of my stories and live-tweet threads from the last five years for your convenience. Reflecting on the 1,400+ stories I wrote, I'll say this: I would do it again. And then some. Away we go.
When I first started tweeting it began in earnest with my coverage of all things Paul Manafort. When former Pres. Trump pardoned him, it prompted me to reflect on that experience and I shared much of my key coverage in a thread. That starts here:
It was an exhilarating experience to cover Manafort's trial though incredibly taxing. The highlight for me? When I crashed the CNS website because of my live coverage:

Some personal news: I was laid off from Courthouse News. Not for performance but over a dispute re: my compensation. I enjoyed my time here covering the White House, Congress and the courts at such a critical juncture in history. So, if seeking a DC beat reporter, DMs are open!
I sincerely did not want this outcome because I was genuinely happy to work for CNS as hard I did for as long as I did.
I am going to take a day. But in the coming days, I will post some of my work here and I hope while this door was closed, as they say, a new window opens.
Thank you, my readers, so much for following me, for following my former masthead and for allowing me to do what I love: sharing the news with you so you can make up your own mind about what matters and why.
