My Work

I graduated from Florida State University with degrees in Creative Writing and French. During and since college, I have worked as a local beat newspaper reporter, was one of the founding members of the Florida Phoenix statewide political startup news site, have been and continue to be a freelance journalist, run a student journalism program, and am now on staff with the nonprofit Education Writers Association that supports journalists who cover education. Check out some of my work below.

I consider myself an amateur nature photographer with professional credits from my time as a local news reporter. Check out a selection of my work here. 


I worked my way up from an intern to a full-time K-12 education beat reporter at the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper, part of the Gannett USAToday Network. Check out a selection of my articles on the beat. 

Stack of Newspapers

In January 2020, I created a program that would turn into the Florida Student News Watch, funded in part by SPJ - Florida and nonprofit watchdog Florida Center for Government Accountability.


I am most passionate about eventually publishing fantasy novels, and also am at work on a memoir of life on a horse farm in North Florida. Read a bit about that over on the Fiction & Nonfiction page. 


I was one of four founding members of the Florida Phoenix, a statewide political news startup site that continues to operate out of Tallahassee, Florida.
