I'm an Emmy nominated video producer at CNN who covers the intersection of technology, mental health, economy, startups and climate change. I have more than a decade's worth of experience in video editing and motion graphics design and have been published on CNN, Frontline/PBS, The New York Times Magazine and AJ+.

My work includes documentaries, visual investigations, 360˚

virtual reality experiences and explainer videos that have brought me to the towering redwood forests, launch pads of space rockets, above Manhattan's skyline in Uber helicopters, the banks of the

Mississippi River, secretive military operations in the desert and many other places around the country where there are stories to tell. I graduated summa cum laude from Emerson College in Boston with a Bachelor's in video production and have a Master's in journalism from New York University. I currently live in West New York with my Australian shepherd, Hudson.
