Originally from Los Angeles, CA, I got my start in journalism working at an NPR-affiliate station, WFUV, on campus at Fordham University and at the college newspaper. After graduation, I went from MSNBC to Cheddar working in TV production, while writing freelance articles on local NYC news.

Seeking a career in investigative journalism, I moved to South Carolina in 2020 to work at McClatchy’s Island Packet and Beaufort Gazette newspapers. I reported on police, courts, and breaking news. Soon I was embroiled in one of the most explosive murder stories in the history of the area, the Murdaugh murders. My coverage won several awards, and I was featured in the subsequent HBO documentary.

I now work as a public safety reporter for The Current, a nonprofit investigative newsroom coverign Coastal Georgia. The journalism program,Report for America sponsored me for this role. I cover police, courts, EMS, fire and other aspects of public safety from Savannah on down to St. Marys.

When I’m not working, I can be found going for runs, listening to podcasts, playing video games, or petting my dog, Willoughby.
