about me


I'm an award-winning journalist, filmmaker, writer and photographer focused on stories at the intersection of pop culture, politics and social justice.

After graduating from Cornell University, I earned my master's from the Columbia University School of Journalism, spent four years as a video producer at the Huffington Post, launched a new late-night talk show on VH1, and traveled the world as the field/story producer for Amazon Prime's untitled Novak Djokovic documentary project.

I currently work as a producer/showrunner at Time Inc. 

I love Sade, skiing and apple pie.
