ABOUT ME

As a multimedia storyteller, I want to give a voice to those who feel they have none. I am digital and broadcast journalism major at Virginia Commonwealth University whose breaking-news and feature stories have been published coast to coast -- from The Washington Post to the Seattle Times. I have also had video packages aired on PBS Richmond through VCU InSight. When I graduate in 2019, I hope to bring my passion for telling otherwise-untold stories to a news organization committed to public-service journalism.
