A little bit about me...

Before joining Report For America, I covered politics in Washington, D.C. for audiences in upstate New York and Texas while a graduate student at Northwestern University’s Medill D.C. program.


I grew up in Burlington Township, New Jersey, a small suburb of Philadelphia along the Delaware River. In 2019, I graduated cum laude with a B.A. from the University of Southern California, where I majored in journalism and history, focusing on past and present intersections of policy, race and mass media in downtown Los Angeles.  I received a masters degree in journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern in June 2020.
