I'm an energetic reporter in D.C., accepting freelance assignments in a variety of fields. I'm currently working part time on a local online reporting start-up, and my background is in daily newsrooms (I've worked cops, education, and GA beats). I'm deadline and detail oriented with experience on quick turnarounds as well as longer feature pieces. I've traveled and lived abroad (mostly sub-Saharan Africa) and speak Spanish, Malagasy and some French. I'm interested in travel and culture. I also am gluten intolerant and can write on gluten free health, food and cooking.
