I’m a journalist covering business, real estate and consumer affairs at The Desert Sun in California’s Coachella Valley.
Professional history: In 2014, I reported from Mumbai as a Pulitzer Center Student Fellow and wrote features for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In college I interned at GOOD.is, CBS2/KCAL9 and The Cleveland Museum of Art. I served in AmeriCorps at the JusticeCorps legal self-help center in Downtown Los Angeles. For two years, I reported for, produced and managed projects at Annenberg Radio News.
I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Southern California in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Print and Digital Journalism, a second major in History and a minor in Russian Area Studies.

Skills and interests: I’m a morning person, Ohio native, museum devotee and the friend who always suggests leaving our cars for the bus. I can speak and understand Russian, read French and write HTML/CSS. I love listening to the news, mapping new cities and reading about science, Central Asia, our planet and others, Russian painting and Isaac Asimov. I could be convinced to move anywhere, as long as I have access to “Born to Run.”
