IMG_1510Hello! I’m a journalist, author and academic based in New York City especially interested in foreign conflict.

I’m an Associate Producer for Anderson Cooper 360 at CNN, where I helped produce the Emmy award winning special report Finding Hope: Battling America’s Suicide Crisis and the Emmy-nominated documentary The Parkland Diaries, about the Parkland survivors and the beginnings of the March for Our Lives movement). I have also covered the Trump Presidency, the August 12th white nationalist riot in Charlottesville, Hurricane Maria’s impact on Puerto Rico, among many, many others. For Anderson Cooper Full Circle, our Facebook Watch daily show, I have written over 200 scripts for Anderson. I’m also a frequent contributor to CNN.com and CNN Digital.



I also just completed my dissertation for my second master’s degree, an M.A. in War Studies, through King’s College London’s distance learning program. My research is on American journalism at the turn of the 20th century and its coverage of Anarchist terrorism, an early example of the often-symbiotic relationship between the media and terrorist actors. I also hold a Master of Public Policy degree from the University of Virginia, where I completed research on the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion. My B.A. with distinction in History is also from the University of Virginia, where I was a Jefferson Scholar.

Last year, I wrote and anchored a web series for Beme News, CNN Digital Productions’ millennial-focused YouTube channel. It was titled called “More Than You Wanted to Know,” and dived deep into the history, policy, science and law behind the headlines.
