I am a journalist and writer who was born in Minnesota but grew up in Toulouse France. I am a graduate of the London School of Economics, (BSc. in International Relations), of Columbia University’s School of the Arts (MFA in Playwriting) and Columbia University’s School of Journalism (MS in Journalism with a magazine concentration). At Columbia’s Journalism School, I was awarded the John Horgan Award for Critical Science Journalism at graduation by the School’s alumni for a feature article about manatee conservation.
I am currently the assistant editor of the travel vertical at The Weather Channel online (weather.com). Prior to this, I interned at Nautilus magazine, Audubon magazine, Condé Nast Traveler Magazine and at Bon Appétit Magazine. You can read my writing at weather.com; Nautilus’ online magazine and blog; Audubon Magazine’s Blog; Narratively; Spectrum the Columbia School of Social Work’s magazine; two Columbia Journalism websites, The Columbia Journalist and The Midtown Gazette; and the TCG Circle.
