I'm a technology correspondent at CNNMoney NYC bureau covering startups, innovation, VC's and all things new and cool.

I've interviewed entrepreneurs like Bill Gates, reported on stories ranging from drone technology in Israel to the benefits of digital classrooms and given our audience a behind the scenes look at tech companies like Twitter and Instagram. I also worked on a series that explored the growing rate of sex trafficking in Silicon Valley, exposing how victims are recruited via social networks.

In addition to reporting about technology, I've covered national breaking news that intersects with technology. In the aftermath of the Boston Bombing, I was able to reconstruct suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s deleted Instagram account. I also used technology to track down and exclusively interview Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro's daughter, Angie Gregg.

I was named to Forbes’ ‘30 Under 30’, Mashable’s ‘Seven Top Journalists to Subscribe to on Facebook. I've spoken at industry conferences, including Internet Week New York and SXSW.

I grew up in Atlanta and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Michigan.
