About Me

After five years working in the credit card industry, I left to explore how debt and credit impact the lives of ordinary Americans from new angles.  At Capital One, I was a Senior Business Manager leading subprime credit limit increases, and a research agenda to improve the impact of lending decisions on the financial health of consumers.

Before Capital One, I wrote for the Duke Chronicle and the Charlotte Observer, and did research and consulting for the Nkokonjeru Savings and Credit Cooperative.  I studied Math and Economics at Duke University, graduating as an Angier B. Duke Scholar in 2013.
