The most important stories are the ones not yet told.
I’m reminded of this every time I have the opportunity to interview someone. From writing about a University of Oregon transgender student’s experience with Greek Life to the ongoing debate over single-payer healthcare to lift up the most financially vulnerable in America.
After graduating from the University of Oregon with a degree in Journalism and Communication, I returned to my hometown of Portland, Oregon, to report on local issues as a reporter for KBOO-FM Radio and as a Communications Intern for Metro Regional Government.
For Portland’s longtime community radio station KBOO- FM Radio, I am a news reporter, anchor and producer. I’ve covered local issues including access to menstruation products, Portland’s history of anti-fascism activism, and defund the Portland Police Bureau campaign to reallocate funds into communities of color.
Through my work with Metro, I was the main writer and photographer reporting on Metro Regional Government’s potential transportation funding measure for the 2020 November ballot.
Additionally, I’ve also worked for multiple publications including Eugene Weekly, Ethos Magazine, The Daily Emerald, and Street Roots.
When I’m not writing or reading the news, you can find me biking around town and spending time with friends and family.
