I am currently an investigative reporter at The Philadelphia Inquirer.

My goal is to show the extraordinary and complicated sides of everyday life.

Journalism has been my career path since I was in the seventh grade and I joined the student paper. Since then, I’ve wanted nothing more than to tell the stories of those around me. What makes them tick. What brings them joy. What causes friction. Why people are they way they are.
