I'm an education reporter covering Newport News Public Schools and Hampton University at the Daily Press in Newport News, Va.
I'm a recent graduate of the Center for Collaborative Journalism at Mercer University. I freelanced at The Telegraph during my last two years in school, covering high school basketball, football, soccer and other topics.
I spent summer 2015 as an investigative reporting intern at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, helping the team with ongoing investigations while closing out work I did with the Georgia News Lab in the spring.
I interned with iHeartMedia, Inc. in fall 2014, co-hosting the two-hour Mercer Tailgate Show on local sports radio station. I also interned at AL.com and The Huntsville Times in summer 2014, where I covered local sports and headed AL.com’s World Cup coverage, utilizing SEO-friendly techniques on posts that helped Huntsville hub reach traffic goals by 103 percent. In fall 2013 I interned with Georgia Public Broadcasting, having GPB's first sports-only beat of Mercer's first football team in 72 years.
I worked for Vox Media from July 2013-May 2015, where I managed SB Nation blog TalkingChop.com and served as the copy and news editor of PeachtreeHoops.com.
