I am a video journalist for KPBS, the PBS and NPR affiliate in San Diego, California. I shoot and edit in-depth features for television, radio, and the web, reporting stories on my own when time allows. I am a San Diego native and returned to cover my hometown after working as a video journalist for the Pulitzer Prize-winning Las Vegas Sun.

I serve on the national board of directors for the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA), working to further our mission of promoting and protecting integrity and excellence in visual journalism.

I previously worked as a print and video journalist for a daily newspaper in Johannesburg, South Africa, where I primarily covered ongoing election violence in Zimbabwe and the resulting emigration. I also interned for the Associated Press, producing internationally circulated videos and writing articles, including one from the White House press room.

I have been nominated for an Emmy, and has won first place awards from the San Diego chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and the San Diego Press Club. I was also a finalist for the Livingston Awards for Young Journalists. I am a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, where I also rowed for the Northwestern Crew Team.

I am passionate about public media, diving, snowboarding, and traveling the world – including in her own back yard, telling visual stories from Mexico as often as possible.

Please reach out to me with any freelancing needs in the San Diego or Tijuana area.
