Biography

Multiplatform journalist currently covering the 2016 presidential race for CNN Newsource, based in Washington. Johns Hopkins, Peabody Conservatory and Columbia J-School alum.

What was your first job as a journalist?

My first paycheck from a news outlet came at age 9, when I won the Times Herald-Record (Middletown, NY) holiday writing contest.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

In 2nd grade, I insisted that my dad pull out his typewriter so I could type up an assignment and make it look "professional."

Why did you become a journalist?

Journalism takes me places I never dreamed I'd go, and then I get to relay and share those experiences.
