Biography 

I am a journalist and video producer currently based in Atlanta, Ga.

I studied Photojournalism and Religion at the University of Georgia and then worked as a photojournalist at a small, family-owned newspaper in Northern Indiana. The paper was starting the transition to prioritize their online presence and I quickly realized I had a lot to learn about the Internet. I got my Master’s from UNC-Chapel Hill as a Roy H. Park fellow, studying short documentary filmmaking and web design to give myself more tools to tell stories for the web. I made films for the Southern Coalition for Social Justice and was recruited to work on a national criminal justice campaign for the AFL-CIO. Then I moved to Washington, DC to work as a producer at the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting where I shot short documentary films, facilitated education programs, managed interns, curated exhibits in DC and New York, designed our most popular e-book Flight from Syria, and launched and grew our Instagram to more than 60k followers.

I have recently moved back to Atlanta to report and tell stories in the South.
