I’m an award-winning multimedia journalist, photographer and video producer. I am a general assignment reporter for DNAinfo Chicago, which provides hyperlocal coverage of the city’s neighborhoods.
I have worked at DNAinfo since May 2015, and I interned there twice while a journalism major at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Ill. I primarily cover breaking news and crime with a focus on homicides and shootings.
I am the youngest student to have been elected editor in chief and publisher of the Northern Star, the independent, student-run newspaper serving Northern Illinois University and the DeKalb community. I took the top spot in the newspaper in May 2012 after less than a year at the paper, and I was re-elected by the staff every semester during the remainder of my time at NIU. I was the longest-serving editor in chief in the paper’s history.
