Dillon is a reporter for the investigative non-profit Searchlight New Mexico and a corps member of Report for America.
Though a proud Midwesterner from South Bend, Indiana, he’s spent the last four years between Philadelphia, where he went to school, and Freiburg, Germany where his heart resides. He now lives in Albuquerque.
Dillon has written about migration and immigration, climate change, and police accountability. His work has appeared in the New Republic and the Philadelphia Inquirer. From 2019 to 2020, he was a Fulbright Germany Journalism Fellow.
Someone once said that Grace Paley “is a wonderful writer and troublemaker. We are fortunate to have her in our country.” That is the type of praise Dillon would like to earn someday
