I am a multimedia journalist based in D.C. Whether through audio or video, photography or text, even Instagram or Twitter or Tumblr, I love telling stories. (Admittedly, those Instagram stories end up mostly about my dog.)
My background is in international relations and I have lived, worked and traveled in such places as Florence, Munich, Cairo and Tbilisi. I get a kick out of visiting new places, learning new things and meeting new people, which is very much the reason I decided to be a journalist.
I have a B.A. in International Studies from the University of Colorado Denver and an M.S. in Journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. I am currently an intern with the Office of Diversity at NPR, working to increase the range of voices and stories on public radio. Previously I was a multimedia intern with Agence France-Presse. My work has appeared in the Sacramento Bee, Texas Tribune, Times of Northwest Indiana and on UPI.com and McClatchyDC.com.
This site is my professional portfolio and a work always in progress. You can get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow me on Twitter (I promise I say worthwhile things sometimes).
