HELLO

I'm a reporter, multimedia storyteller, writer, time manager, event planner and list-maker based in Chicago.

I believe in steadfast journalism that is collaborative, creative and community-centered. From in depth reporting and investigations to features and breaking news, I’m drawn to telling stories with impact — stories that search for solutions, engage communities and promote transparency. 

Let's work together.
