I'm a multimedia journalist with a strong commitment to service journalism and innovative storytelling.

I've reported for WAMU, Washington City Paper, The Daily Dot, DCist, Houston Public Media, Daily News & Analysis (in India) and the American Way of Life Magazine.

I worked as Senior News Editor at the public radio station in Washington D.C. for nearly three years—starting when I was 22.

Some of my favorite topics to cover include social justice, government, women's issues, the internet, culture, campaign finance and development. I also have experience editing both longform stories and short news pieces in radio and print.
