Victoria, TX, United States
Graduated from Lewis & Clark College in May 2013 with a B.S. in International Affairs. DId a three-month internship at the Palo Alto Weekly before moving to Israel for five months, four of which were spent interning for a small international wire news service. Moved back to Palo Alto, CA (my home) and worked at a startup, Lifograph, for three months before getting a job at the Midland Reporter-Telegram in August 2014.
In Midland i have reported on how hard it is for normal people to afford rent and services in a town overblown by oil money, while tracking the downturn in an energy industry struggling with sub-$50 oil. The rise and fall has not been equal for everyone, and in my position I am able to tap those in oil, politicians, employers, employees, and regular citizens.
I bring an international focus to otherwise local issues, and vice versa. I do on-assignment photography and delve deep into my subjects. I have an influential social media presence that grows daily. Quick and accurate copy are my game.
