Hi, my name is

These days, I’m based in Palo Alto, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley.

I am managing editor of Stanford’s in-house news startup Peninsula Press (partnered with SFGate and KQED) and a founding member of the Stanford Computational Journalism Lab. I have recently published stories on NPR, Vox’s Eater, OZY Media, Knight Foundation and Stanford School of Engineering. I previously worked at Mashable and NBC News Digital. I have my master’s degree in journalism from Stanford University, and my bachelor’s degree in Broadcast News Journalism from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I was bitten by the news bug during internships years ago at KUSA-TV in Denver, NBC News’s TODAY Show, High Noon Entertainment’s “Food Network Challenge,” the Scripps Howard News Service and news curator startup Ongo News.

Other than news, news and more news, here’s what I’m currently reading:
