I'm an award-winning multimedia journalist from the Pacific Northwest. I specialize in video and audio production, as well as science and environmental journalism.
I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in visual journalism and chemistry at Western Washington University, and was picked as the 2017 Outstanding Graduate by the Western Journalism Department.
I'm currently a video producer at Grist, covering climate change, the environment, and science. Before that, I was editor-in-chief at The Planet Magazine, Western Washington University's award-winning environmental magazine.
