About Me

The Cliffs of Moher, Ireland 2011.

I’m reporter at WABE, the NPR station in Atlanta.  My work has appeared on NPR, MarketplaceWNYC, and the New York Daily News among others.  I’m a 2014 immigration reporting fellow with the Institute of Justice and Journalism.

I graduated from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in 2013, where I honed my multimedia skills and hosted a podcast, Audiofiles. I’m adept at covering stories using a variety of mediums, including audio, video for the web, text and infographics. I am also passionate about covering diverse communities and believe that news should strive to be reflective of the communities they serve.

I was honored to receive the “2015 Rising Star Award” from the Atlanta Press Club.
