I’m a freelance writer and filmmaker based in Taos, New Mexico.

I’ve covered national affairs for PBS NewsHour in Washington, D.C. focusing on the environment, education and politics. My reporting has brought me inside a far-right militia’s training camp, to pipeline resistance blockades and to the U.S.-Mexico border. In 2018, my story for PBS NewsHour about the environmental impacts of border security won an Honorable Mention from the Society of Environmental Journalists. I recently covered the 2018 midterm election for Vice News Tonight on HBO.

I got my start at Al Jazeera English as a researcher on investigative documentaries, including the Peabody-winning film “Made In Bangladesh,” which exposed child labor in the supply chains of U.S. retailers. Since then, I’ve reported from England, Mexico, Canada, Myanmar, Vietnam, the Philippines and Nepal. I’ve covered climate change, wildlife crime and natural disasters. My features and films have been published with The Guardian, National Geographic, Al Jazeera English, Vice News and others. I have degrees in journalism and natural resource economics from the University of Rhode Island. Before becoming a journalist, I designed and planted urban gardens in Providence, Rhode Island, including the Roger Williams Park Edible Forest Garden. I’m also the recipient of several fellowships including the Metcalf Institute on Marine and Environmental Reporting, the Institute for Journalism and Natural Resources and the National Tropical Botanical Gardens Environmental Journalism Fellowship. 

I’m also a member of the Society of Environmental Journalists.
