I covered the PyeongChang Olympics primarily for The Washington Post. I spearheaded The Post's daily Olympics newsletter, as well as wrote features, sport guides and interviews both during and prior to the Games.

A few of my favorite pieces were about a the man who sharpens U.S. figure skates, the U.S. women's cross country team, comentators Tara Lipinsky & Johnny Weir, and the twentieth anniversial of a backflip

In total, I produced more than three dozen stories, which were shared tens of thousands of times. Below are links to that work.
