I’m an award-winning multimedia journalist currently working as a reporter and the senior news editor at WFIU and WTIU, the NPR and PBS stations in Bloomington, Ind. I file daily and in-depth stories for TV and radio that air on member stations across the state. While I’m a general assignment reporter, I specialize in criminal justice reporting. I pitched, shot, wrote and edited a three-part series on Indiana’s flawed public defense system, which I then turned into a half-hour special.
In addition to covering stories for multiple platforms, I edit the daily content that other reporters contribute to our newscasts. I also anchor the headlines segment of Indiana NewsDesk, which airs weekly on WFYI and WTIU.
Before coming to Southern Indiana, I worked as a reporter and anchor for WNDU in South Bend, Ind. During my time there, I developed a reputation for my ability to think quickly in breaking news situations.
My seven years of experience reporting in the Hoosier state make me feel at home here, despite being an Illinois native. I love being a storyteller, and I’m constantly surprised by the people and places I discover along the way. My job has given me many amazing opportunities, and falling in love with Indiana is the greatest reward.
