Some words about me
Jumping from the worlds of computer science to blogging to J-School to data-driven reporting, my path to professional newsrooms was full of twists and turns, and a variety of different experiences turned me into the multifaceted journalist I am today.
A nontraditional background has seasoned my skillsets outside the bounds of traditional newsrooms and established a steadfast commitment to journalism's core values and to producing enlightened reporting on issues most impacting our communities.
After graduating from the University of Minnesota in 2014 with a professional journalism degree, I landed at the Star Tribune, where I'm currently a data journalist focused on visualization and enterprise reporting.
I’ve had the immense privilege of producing work both independently and for a half dozen news organizations – and as a continuously-employed journalist for a decade. Over the years, I’ve covered a wide range of topics from digital privacy, cybersecurity, intellectual property, internet culture, science, technology, public health, demographics, elections, criminal justice and police accountability.
