About

Hi! Thanks for visiting.

I’m a reporter and fact-checker at Washingtonian magazine in Washington, D.C. with experience in investigative journalism, editing, production and research. I enjoy imaginative multimedia storytelling and data-driven investigative reporting that keeps the powerful accountable, particularly with a solutions focus.

During my recent 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 intelligent 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.
