I'm a global journalist with Midwest roots currently working at China Daily, an English-language daily newspaper, in Beijing, China.
My reporting has sent me across the globe covering everything from local issues to hot, international subjects. I've been a multimedia political reporter for the The Cedar Rapids Gazette and covered the state legislature in Des Moines.
I got my start at University of Iowa student newspaper, The Daily Iowan, working as a metro editor, projects editor, and metro reporter covering university and local politics.
When I'm not traveling or working, I'm earning a degree in political science and journalism at the University of Iowa.
Prior to my recent journalistic work, I have experience in community organizing, photography, and design.
