I'm a journalist based in Phoenix with 15 years of radio, TV, print and web experience, currently focusing on data analysis and investigative work at National Public Radio. I use R and Python to scrape, clean and analyze large data sets and turn them into human-centered stories that sparkle on the radio. I adapt quickly, work well solo or with a team and won’t buckle under pressure.
My past roles have included producing podcasts at The Tampa Bay Times; reporting news from the world's largest wild salmon fishery in Dillingham, Alaska (KDLG Public Radio); covering breaking news and social media as web editor at the ABC affiliate (WCPO-TV) in Cincinnati, Ohio; teaching English and journalism for the Peace Corps in eastern Europe (Macedonia); and a Dow Jones News Fund fellowship with the Center for Investigative Reporting in Berkeley, California.
I completed my master's degree in investigative journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. I also hold bachelor's degrees in journalism and international studies from Miami University (Ohio).
