I am a journalist currently working as a digital editor/reporter for KMUW, Wichita’s public radio station, where I publish radio stories to the web and manage our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, as well as write occasional spot news stories for the site.

Before coming to Kansas I reported for a small but dynamic newspaper in Dickinson, North Dakota, where I covered issues related to crime, local government, health, education and demographics in the Bakken. Before that I conducted research and managed social media (which you can check out here) for NPR’s Diversity Office in Washington.

My work has been published on NPR’s Code Switch blog, UPI.com and McClatchyDC.com, and in the Sacramento Bee, Texas Tribune and Times of Northwest Indiana. I previously worked as a multimedia intern at the Agence France-Presse Washington bureau, where I packaged stories from the wire for clients around the world. I have a B.A. in International Studies from University of Colorado Denver and an M.S. in Journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University (but some days I think the dog daycare better prepared me for this profession).

I love what I get to do and am always looking for ways to do it better. This site is my professional portfolio and a work in progress.  If you have any questions or just want to say hi, please send me an email or get in touch on Twitter (I promise I say worthwhile things sometimes).
