I grew up in Albany, N.Y., a city steeped in politics, and took my first newspaper job as a clerk at the Times Union while studying at the University of Albany. Since then I’ve written about local, state and national politics – from City Hall in Indianapolis to the White House – and currently cover Washington for The Baltimore Sun. I live in Maryland.
