|“There are eight million stories in the naked city. This is one.”|
— from the 1948 film The Naked City
I’m a Washington, D.C. native, UC Berkeley (BA history) and Columbia University (MS journalism) graduate, accepting freelance work around the world. Currently, I live in NYC.
I reported for UC Berkeley’s student paper, The Daily Californian, covering NCAA sports; town-and-gown news, specifically land use; student protests about budget talks and tuition hikes; crime in West Berkeley and food in North Berkeley; and concerts around the Bay Area.
In May 2008, when riots erupted in South African townships, I moved to Cape Town to work as a photojournalist. After graduating college in 2010, I assisted the Oakland Athletics’ and the San Francisco 49ers’ team photographer, Michael Zagaris, archiving and shooting regular season games, spring training, and the All-Star Game.
My work has appeared in The New York Times and Vice, the Guardian and the Miami New Times, among others.
**Also, I love long-form, nonfiction crime stories, coffee, and the Oxford comma.
