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 oil field. Before that I conducted research and managed the Source of the Week database (which you can check out here) under NPR’s VP for Diversity.
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 the University of Colorado Denver and an M.S. in Journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
