I’m a New York City-based video producer and documentary filmmaker.

I’ve covered race, gender and economic inequality, health care, politics, tech, education, the music industry, and all things money. 

I earned my B.A. from Columbia University, and my M.A. in Journalism at New York University, with a concentration in documentary film. My thesis documentary, School of Yoga, screened at the 2015 DOC NYC film festival. My PBS NewsHour feature on women's political empowerment in Senegal was awarded the 2015 National Mark of Excellence Award by the Society of Professional Journalists.

I'm currently a digital video Producer for CNN, where my work includes the Emmy-nominated Feeding America's Most Vulnerable Children, and the Gracie and Eppy Award-winning Revenge Porn: The Cyberwar Against Women.
