Before coming to The World, I wrote features and grabby headlines for GOOD Magazine. There, I mainly focused on feminism, trans rights, Internet oddities and trends and pop culture. Additionally, I have a background in digital editing and writing at alt weeklies (San Antonio Current, Boston's Weekly Dig, Detroit Metro Times), TV News production and writing (KSAT-12/ABC), Arts & Entertainment reporting and criticism (Flavorwire, Village Voice, OC Weekly, Metro, NoTofu, PLANET), anti-establishment startups (The Media, Boston Hassle), and fueling the blogosphere.
In addition to my news career I am an experienced production assistant with credits on big budget films, grassroots documentaries, primetime television and more.
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Magazine Journalism from Boston University as well as a graduate certificate from The New School University in documentary film. I have two pugs named Pizza and Norm, respectively. Once upon a time I lived in Maui and worked as a sustainable farmer. I am always on the Internet.
The World is a public radio program that crosses borders and time zones to bring home the stories that matter.
