bio_1I’m currently senior video producer for Quartz. Based in New York City, I oversee all video coverage and, when I can, produce my own pieces, like this recent collaboration with Retro Report.

Before joining Quartz, I ran video for GlobalPost, where we won a Peabody award, two Edward R Murrow awards, a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, a National Press Club Award, a Polk Award, and a bunch of others. Before becoming GlobalPost’s Senior Producer, I spent two years reporting from South America, North Africa and South Asia for GlobalPost and other outlets, producing multimedia packages alongside my husband and fellow correspondent, Erik German.

Before that, I spent a year associate producing a pair of one-hour documentaries for NOVA, the PBS network’s flagship science show, and three years covering criminal justice in New York City for New York 1. I won a New York Press club award for stories exposing illegal police detentions of innocent photographers; I covered the first New York jury to hand up a federal death sentence in 50 years; and I broke details hour after hour during the media firestorm following the fatal police shooting of Sean Bell, an unarmed black man killed on his wedding day. bio_3 NY1 editors also chose me for a rare international assignment to investigate reforms to the Japanese criminal justice system and compare Tokyo’s police force with New York City’s.

Before joining NY1, I worked in print, focusing on science, health and the environment. I wrote for Discover Magazine, The Village Voice, Newsday and other publications. I also spent a year in Phnom Penh, Cambodia as writing for The Cambodia Daily, covering government corruption and environmental abuses.

I was born and raised in California, and I still miss the Mexican food.
