I report on the climate and human rights. But I got my start reporting on everything.

At Princeton, I covered campus social media, architectural controversy, and Talmudic debates. I took a work-study job in the humanities office just to get closer to journalism professors. It paid off: I twice-won Princeton's Ferris Prize for Exceptional Journalism – nominated by John McPhee  and Amy Ellis Nutt.

I got my Master's at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism in May 2021. There, my environmental policy coverage won the White House Correspondents Association Student Scholarship. I was also one of five recipients nationwide of the Taylor Blakeslee Fellowship from the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing, and the sole recipient of the National Press Club's Feldman Fellowship.

After graduating in May 2021, I spent nearly three months reporting in Norway for The World and National Geographic. My print features have also appeared in The Atlantic, The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, Yale Climate Connections, Earth Island Journal, and more. My radio stories have aired on Reveal, PRI's The World, KQED's California Report Magazine and Morning Edition, and KALW.

When I'm not reporting, producing, or experimenting with sound design, you can find me biking around the Bay or practicing my stand-up bass.
