Hi! Thanks for stopping by.
I’m a freelance journalist based in Washington, D.C. (Ward 1) with experience in news reporting, editing, fact-checking and research. I’m looking for more opportunities to engage in evocative storytelling and data-driven investigative reporting that keeps the powerful accountable, particularly with a solutions focus.
Most recently I worked as Editorial Fellow with Washingtonian, where I fact-checked the print magazine and wrote about District happenings and culture. During my 2014-2016 Peace Corps service in Togo, West Africa, I worked as Media Specialist for Pathways Togo, a nonprofit Peace Corps partner which provides support for highly disadvantaged, exceptionally bright Togolese girls. My Pathways productions include “Art of Awareness,” a national anti-sexual violence radio and television campaign, “Bigger Than Our Problems,” an empowering girl-focused photo project, and “#LikeAGirl,” a video denouncing sexist stereotypes with humor.
Previously, I’ve done a variety of reporting and other media work with DCist, AllAfrica, the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, Mic, Amnesty International, the Badger Herald, and other publications. I’ve written pieces on politics from the local to the international, and I enjoy exploring environment, identity and education issues. I’m tech- and social media-savvy, and have experience illustrating stories with infographics, maps, audio, video and photography.
