He previously reported for National Journal, Talking Points Memo and Governing magazine. Since coming to Washington, D.C., in 2011, he has covered the biggest political news of the day: Supreme Court rulings on the Affordable Care Act and gay marriage, the opening of diplomatic relations with Cuba, the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and the 2016 presidential campaign. He has broken news on major developments on Capitol Hill, profiled prominent figures like film director Steven Soderbergh, and traveled across the country to tell stories beyond the Beltway.

Over the last five years, his reporting has been referenced by the top news organizations in the United States: the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, Slate, ProPublica, Politico, The AtlanticThe New Republic, MSNBC, EsquireGawker and SCOTUSblog.

Dylan’s first job out of college took him to the award-winning Las Vegas Sun, where he covered the fallout of the Great Recession in one of the country’s hardest-hit metropolitan areas.

Before graduating from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University in 2010, he was awarded first place by the Associated Press Society of Ohio for Best Investigative Reporting for a series of stories exposing questionable accounting practices and budget decisions by the university’s administration.
