Based in the Bay Area, I’m presently pursuing my master’s degree at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism.

Prior to grad school, I was an English and journalism teacher at La Quinta High, as well as the adviser of the school newspaper.

The unifying thread that has run through my life is having done good work alongside good people who have broadened my worldview along the way. This has manifested in delightfully different ways throughout my life: whether it’s through teaching or reporting, my goal is to constructively and meaningfully engage with my community.
