I'm a multimedia journalist and producer, born and raised in Oakland, CA and now based again in the East Bay.
I'm a general assignment reporter for the KPFA Pacifica Radio (94.1FM) covering breaking news from local demonstrations and direct actions, to national policy and international affairs. In 2017, I worked as a summer reporter contributing to Crosscurrents on KALW Radio (91.7FM) in San Francisco.
I'm also a KPFA certified radio broadcast board engineer.
In May 2015, I graduated from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, with a master's degree in International Policy and Development with a focus on land and water rights, conflict resolution, and sustainable development. There my research locally focused on how communities are protecting water quality in the Salinas Valley, how agricultural run-off is regulated, and solutions for the future of sustainable agriculture. I have two bachelor's degrees from the University of Miami in International Studies and Psychology. In Oakland, I attended Bishop O'Dowd High School.
