I’m a reporter, content producer and writer living in Seattle, Washington. I work for KING 5’s lifestyle show, Evening.
Technically, my job title is Multi-Platform Producer, but that might be a little mystifying to some people, so let me break it down for you: I’m an on-air talent who also shoots video, edits video, produces stories, and writes scripts. I don’t dance, though. Or sing. Sorry.
My other passion is writing. I’ve been writing fiction and non-fiction since middle school, when I arrived on the writing scene with my incredible Pokémon fanfiction. Yes, you’ve read far enough to gain an embarrassing fun fact about me. Congratulations.
Thankfully, I’ve graduated past Pokémon fanfiction. Several of my short stories have been published both in print and online, and you might’ve seen some of my articles floating around out there as well. My most well-known articles are a piece for Vox about sexual harassment in local news, and a personal essay for the American Tinnitus Association.
I do non-profit work for both NAMI Seattle and the American Tinnitus Association. Raising awareness about mental health and tinnitus is very important to me, and I’m grateful to work with these two stellar organizations. As someone with both tinnitus and an anxiety disorder, I feel strongly about using my platform as a public figure to be vocal about these two issues.
When I’m not doing any of the above, I’m usually reading, taking a leisurely run around the neighborhood, or hanging out with my adorable hamster, Peachy Keen.
