My name is Bryan Metzger, and I'm an award-winning journalist covering money in politics, transparency, lobbying, and democracy issues.


I've written primarily for New Mexico in Depth, leveraging both data journalism and investigative reporting to shed light on how special interests, dark money, and long-term trends are influencing politics in the state.

In April 2021, I won first place in politics news reporting in SPJ Colorado's Top of the Rockies contest for a story I co-reported on the issue of gray money in New Mexico politics.


I've also written for POLITICO Magazine and Responsible Statecraft, and I'm interested in opportunities to write more on national politics and international affairs.
