About Me

I'm a Los Angeles based journalist and have been published in dozens of news outlets in the city of angels and across the nation.

Currently, I'm employed at the Southern California News Group reporting for the LA Daily News. In this role, I cover LAUSD and education news in addition to reporting on homelessness and substance use. 

I recently published a four-part investigation into fentanyl addiction as a 2023 Reporting Health Fellow with the USC Center for Health Journalism. I received my bachelors degree in from Columbia University. 

When I'm not reporting you can find me going hiking, eating my way through LA's multicultural food scene, or paddling out in pursuit of another glorious wave.
