My Work

Times Union

I write daily news stories on business-related topics, take photos and video and run a Twitter account for the business section. I recently spent several weeks working on a project about the long wait people often face when seeking disability benefits and how it affects their physical and mental health. In addition to reporting and writing the story, I also handled the digital presentation and took most of the photos featured in the project.

News & Observer

I wrote news and enterprise stories, took photos and video for stories and managed the Twitter and Facebook accounts for two community newspapers. I also pitched and wrote a two-part series about immigration, agriculture and farm workers.

Series:

Part I: Are immigrants taking farm jobs from US citizens? In NC, farmers say no.

Part II: Could a 7-year-old have picked the food you’re eating? The law says no. Workers say yes.

I wrote news articles, a daily ‘5 things to know’ item and a weekly news quiz at USA TODAY. I also worked with the business team on a multimedia guide for first-time home buyers and assisted reporters and editors with projects, including Super Bowl 50 coverage, breaking news and managing USA TODAY’s Snapchat and Twitter accounts.

Forbes

During the summer of 2015 I went on a study abroad trip to Germany with a group of students and a professor from my college. I wrote two articles for Forbes, one about a European startup competing with traditional language-learning platforms and another about the widow of a Germany revolutionary.

Empire State Tribune

I started as a reporter at the Tribune during my freshman year at The King’s College and after working in several other roles became editor-in-chief. As a reporter I covered school events and policies, and as editor-in-chief I managed a team of reporters, editors and photographers, oversaw the production of the Tribune’s end-of-semester print magazine and assisted with videography and production of The Weekly Bull, the college’s first student broadcast publication.
