I was one of the broadcast directors starting in the Spring of 2015. I co-produced and co-anchored four live election night coverage specials – two with Rachel Scott and two with Ali Main – from the halo and several other live political specials from Studio A. I was able to cover Vote 2016 from the trail, including by going to two debates and the Washington State Democratic Caucus. I was the Civic Center Bureau Chief for the Media Center in the Spring of 2015. Before becoming USC Annenberg Media, I held multiple positions for ATVN, including producer, and was a reporter for ARN in the Fall of 2012. I also produced and hosted a political interview podcast, The Hot Seat.
