I’m an independent journalist who is driven to tell stories that matter, and to equip people with information they want and need.
Until December 2017, I served as the managing editor and food writer at Triad City Beat, an alternative weekly newspaper based in Greensboro, NC, that I co-founded in February 2014. I worked as the publication’s Greensboro news reporter and wrote TCB’s food and drink columns.
I’d previously been the associate editor and staff writer at independent newspaper YES! Weekly for three years.
As a freelancer, I’ve tackled a wide array of styles and roles, including working as a researcher for this front-page New York Times article about racial bias in police traffic stops and searches. I’ve written for VICE, Teen Vogue, Healthyish (Bon Appétit), Newsday, Edible Brooklyn, Splinter News, Munchies, Creative Loafing Atlanta, Our State magazine, Scalawag magazine, and Mask Magazine, among others.
I’m also the digital & social content developer for the Center for Creative Leadership, a global nonprofit with 11 locations worldwide. A year ago, I graduated from the certificate program at Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies with a focus on audio. I also hold an undergraduate history degree from Guilford College, where I minored in community & justice studies, graduated with honors, and received regular academic awards.
