I love news and telling stories.

ABOUT ME


For my full resume, click here

Through writing, shooting video or reporting in other creative ways, I create interesting, newsworthy content that spans multiple platforms and encourages audience engagement. Currently, I work as a content producer and storyteller for TEGNA’s national digital team, contributing to a number of multimedia reporting projects.

One of my responsibilities is producing content for HeartThreads, a heartwarming vertical that is distributed across all 61 TEGNA stations. I find heartwarming stories and turn them into engaging short documentaries and articles. My stories have received three nominations and one award from the competitive Capital Emmys.

I also work on a groundbreaking Snapchat show called VERIFY, which fact-checks dangerous misinformation online, something I’m passionate about.

Outside of work, I enjoy reading, yoga, hiking and trying new foods.

I produced, wrote and edited each of these stories.

“At 11, he started a baking company that gives free desserts to people in need”
“He uses a wheelchair. She doesn’t. Together, this couple proves all people deserve love.”
“Her bag was stolen. The homeless drug addict who returned it would become one of her closest friends.”
