About Me

 

Since earning a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University, I've written about topics ranging from Chicago's coffee scene to the rise of suburban poverty around Atlanta. I'm also proficient in Spanish, and reported for Dow Jones and the Associated Press in Buenos Aires, Argentina, while working on my degree. 

Now I'm a contributing editor at The Rotarian, the official magazine for Rotary International’s 1.2 million members. For Rotary, I've covered humanitarian initiatives like a microcredit program in Honduras that helps women take the first steps out of poverty and interviewed thought-leaders like Howard Buffett, who is on a quest to give away $3 billion to end world hunger. 

 

My stories have appeared in the Chicago Tribune (Red Eye edition), The Christian Science Monitor, NBCChicago.com, The Seattle Times, and other outlets. This interview with Greenpeace's Annie Leonard recently won an Eddie award.  Take a look at more of my clips here. To get in touch about an assignment, please email me.
