I'm a freelance journalist, writer, researcher, and creative producer.

In the past, I produced Morning Edition at Vermont Public Radio and was a reporter-producer at Marfa Public Radio. A story I did about mutton busting—the rodeo event where children ride sheep—was awarded a 2018 regional Edward R. Murrow Award. I studied audio documentary at Transom Story Workshop.

Journalism is my second career, following more than a decade telling stories for brands through print, digital, and film in New York City.
