i'm a reporter and storytelling consultant.
I write and Talk About feelings. A lot.
I report on issues of identity as seen through the lenses of fashion, food and drink, relationships, and the pursuit of idle pleasures.
In 2015, I was named by Editor & Publisher as one of 25 under 35 legacy newsroom leaders. In 2011, I was a finalist for the Knight Fellowship at Stanford University. In 2011, I founded, and still host, the Arizona Storytellers Project.
In 2012, it won a Rocky Mountain Emmy Award and a National Headliner Award for first place in Journalistic Innovation.
I'm obsessed with the idea that oral storytelling and journalism are dedicated to the same goals: serving and reflecting a community while fostering empathy among those community members.
I feel strongly about NPR, feminism, cocktails and my hair. I prefer a bold lip to a smoky eye.
