I am a Los Angeles-based journalist and filmmaker. Previously, I was the West Coast Video Correspondent for Quartz based in Los Angeles. For over a decade, I was Sr. Video Journalist for The New York Times in New York City and Berlin. I shoot, write, edit and narrate documentary video stories. I often write for print and shoot photos.
Over the years, I’ve won various awards for my work. In 2018, my work won the 2018 Edward R. Murrow National award for Feature Reporting. I was also part of a team that won the 2018 Gerald Loeb award for video. I’ve also won the NPPA award for documentary, the Webby, the RTDNA/RIAS digital media award, and several others.
I worked at ABC News for five years and as a print journalist for a long time, too.
I have reported from almost every state in the U.S. and numerous countries. I covered the Ukraine conflict, the earthquake in Haiti, Hurricane Sandy, the European refugee crisis, the British election, the Boston marathon bombing, Germany's energy transition and many more global and breaking stories. My real passion is science journalism and I have been fortunate enough to report science stories from high above the Arctic circle, Indonesia, the Bahamas, Belize, the Florida Keys, the Aleutian Islands, Sri Lanka, and many other places. One of my favorite things to do while reporting is scuba diving.
