In my current role as Digital Special Projects Producer at NBC Bay Area, I utilize data-driven reporting, open source investigative techniques and multimedia production chops to support our Digital Innovation Team and Investigative Unit. I build news applications and maps to research and visualize topics like property ownership, natural disasters and nuclear contamination. I analyze data that was scraped from publicly available sources or obtained through records requests. I produce Sand Hill Road, a weekly podcast hosted by Scott McGrew that covers venture capital in Silicon Valley and beyond.

I co-created, co-directed and co-wrote “The Moms of Magnolia Street,” an NBC Bay Area investigative docuseries that won a George Foster Peabody Award and an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award. My reporting and various contributions to bodies of work have also earned National and Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards, Society of Professional Journalists honors including a James Madison Freedom of Information Act Award, press club honors in both the Bay Area and Los Angeles and an Emmy Award for investigative reporting.

Prior to becoming a journalist, I worked for six years as a full-time sound engineer and production manager at Doug Weston’s Troubadour, a world famous music venue in Los Angeles that has launched the careers of musicians, comedians and entertainers for the past 65 years. I had the pleasure of working with a range of artists including Prince, Foo Fighters, Haim and The Roots featuring John Legend. I began there as an 18-year-old intern, became the head of production at 21 and then transitioned out of a full-time role a few years later to pursue academic degrees.

I am a proud graduate of Santa Monica College, where I earned an Associate degree in Liberal Arts and Humanities. I continued my studies at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California, where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast and Digital Journalism. While at Annenberg, I helped create the Interactives Desk and a special projects vertical called NEON for USC Annenberg Media. I was also part of a 360 video team that covered the 2017 Presidential Inauguration for the NY Times and the Women’s March on Washington for NPR.
