About

I am a multimedia journalist who uses audio, photos, video and text to report on global human rights and social issues. 

Originally from Washington state, I studied International Relations and Spanish at Seattle University. During my undergraduate training, I studied abroad in Valparaíso, Chile for six months. Since then, I have worked across Latin America in Mexico, Colombia, Dominican Republic and Cuba.

In 2010, I moved to New York City to dedicate the first five years of my career to supporting education access in New York and globally. 

Since changing careers to journalism in 2015, I have interned in Mexico City, Bogotá and New York City for a variety of media houses and news organizations. I have reported on the Farc's disarming and peace process in Colombia, the Venezuelan crisis, gender violence in Mexico, U.S. national politics, environmental issues in New York and conflict in the Middle East. 

I believe journalism is crucial to cultivating an informed, empowered and just society. With my work, I aim to promote the untold stories and humanize the consequences of corruption and injustice.
