I am a journalist and communication specialist by trade -- but have a wide range of interests spanning art to ornithology. My work has been published with several notable organizations, including CAMERA, KCET, the Middle East Forum, the Orange County Register, and the Scientific American.
My day job takes me to sunny Orange County, California -- where I serve as the assistant deputy editor for the OC Register's Commentary pages. As is typical of Millenials, I freelance quite a bit and also teach community college courses in journalism (love teaching!).
I graduated from the University of California, Irvine with distinguished honors, earning a Bachelor of Arts in English. I earned my Master's degree at USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism in the field of Broadcast Journalism.
