I am a visual journalist and storyteller. I’m passionate about new technology and how it enhances jouralism. I work as producer for USA TODAY in Washington D.C. alongside teams of designers, developers and journalists to create data-driven interactives, news applications, storytelling tools and other products for both web and mobile.
Before Gannett, I worked at CNN.com on the interactive storytelling team. I produced slideshows, interactives, maps and galleries. Prior to working as a producer, I interned in the CNN Newsroom helping shows integrate web elements such as blog comments and iReports with daily news programming.
I have my masters in online journalism and my bachelors in mass communications with a concentration in broadcast production.
In addition to journalism my passion lies in music, traveling, cooking, and acquiring too many shoes. I’ve lived in three different cities: Washington D.C., Atlanta, and Richmond.
