I am an Emmy award winning Multimedia Journalist who shoots, reports, writes, edits and produces content for all platforms including television, radio, documentary and web. My work has earned me a New York Emmy, a CINE Golden Eagle and several Mid-Atlantic & Suncoast Emmy nominations, respectively.

In 2005 I reported, shot & co-produced a half-hour documentary, Liberian Democracy: A Journey Back Home, that aired on public television stations across the US. The film chronicled my experiences of meeting my relatives for the first time and coverage of the historic presidential election of Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the first female head of state in Africa. It is easily the most significant piece I've worked on in my short career for one reason: bridging both my personal and professional lives.

In 2008 I was the New Jersey Correspondent for MTV News' Choose or Lose team: 1 of 51 journalists covering the United States presidential election. I blogged, vlogged, tweeted and produced content for all of MTV's platforms from right out of my backpack. The initiative earned my team a Community Service Campaign Emmy from the National Academy of Arts & Sciences.

In 2010 I launched GTN News at the NBC, CBS & MY affiliates in Gainesville, FL. I served as Reporter & Managing Editor, covering some of the biggest stories to hit North Central Florida: the I-75 pileup that killed 11 people, the murder, arrest and conviction of a man who killed a University of Florida cheerleader, the trial of rapper PLIES for a nightclub shooting in Gainesville and an EXCLUSIVE jailhouse interview with one of the suspects convicted of carrying out a teen murder plot. GTN received a Suncoast Emmy nomination for News Excellence the first year of starting news.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts Journalism from Indiana University and a Master of Science in Journalism from Columbia University.

I have worked for New Jersey Public Television & Radio, WFUV Public Radio, MTV News and Gainesville Television Network in Florida.

I currently work as a Multimedia Reporter at KWCH-TV Eyewitness News, the CBS affiliate in Wichita, Kansas.
