My background
My work
My skills

I grew up in suburban Boston and went to college in Maine. My first journalism job was investigating the backstories of abandoned buildings. I've led wilderness trips in Wyoming and New Mexico. I speak Spanish, drink tea, hike and ride bikes. I gravitate towards rural and overlooked places. I live in San Francisco with my husband and son.

I'm a reporter and producer with over ten years of experience telling stories in print, on the radio and in serialized podcasts.


I'm currently a senior podcast producer at LAist Studios, which is part of the NPR-member station LAist 89.3 (formerly KPCC). I work on Imperfect Paradise, a long form narrative journalism show.


Previously, I hosted California City, an investigative narrative podcast about a 60-year long real estate scam in a small town in the Mojave Desert. Before that I was a senior reporter at KPCC covering the environment and the economy. I've also reported on the oilfield in North Dakota and wrote about the rural West for High Country News.

I've won a national Edward R. Murrow award for my reporting on wildfires. I was a finalist for the Daniel Schorr prize for my work on mysterious oilfield deaths. And California City was nominated for a 2021 Ambie Award for Best Documentary Podcast.
