I am a journalist and producer based in Brooklyn, NY. Currently, I am creating a mini-series for Netflix and the good people at Vox.

Previously, I developed and filmed stories for a six-part documentary series by Steven Spielberg and Alex Gibney (“Why We Hate,” Discovery, 2019).

I also produced national and international segments for VICE News Tonight on HBO as a member of the show’s launch team and shot documentaries, edited original series and covered breaking news as a staff video journalist at The New York Times.

In a previous life, I was an English teacher in Beijing and a police reporter in Hamburg, Germany. Ten years on, this interview is still my favorite.

There is nothing like doing good work with good people, is there? So let’s connect!
