I’m a reporter for The Daily Beast living in Brooklyn. I’ve covered crime and breaking news for The Waco Tribune-Herald, worked at a travel magazine and done freelance political reporting for The Texas Observer.

I graduated from McGill University in Montreal, where I was an editor for The McGill Daily, then the President and CEO of the board of the Daily Publications Society.

    Olivia, great article on misogyny in the Texas Legislature,. I wrote a chapter about the sexism of Texas politics in my history of Texas House Speakers, “The House Will Come to Order: How The Texas Speaker Became a Power in State and National Politics.” If you get a chance to read it, I would love to get your response.

    Hi Olivia,
    I saw your report from Waco on the Ed Schultz show. Nice job. I hope MSNBC and NBC News use you a lot more often. You should apply for work at NBC News/MSNBC as a TV reporter at 30 Rock here in NYC.
