You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.

I explore how Angelenos' well-being is affected by who they are and where they live. I report on health access and outcomes -- including environmental and mental health -- across L.A.'s diverse communities.

Previously, I was a reporter and producer at KQED and moonlit at Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting, where I co-reported and co-produced an investigative story that uncovered Tesla's failure to report factory workers' injuries. Our story won the 2018 IRE Radio Award, 2018 Third Coast International Audio award for Radio Impact, and a Sidney Hillman Award. And we are also 2019 Loeb finalists.

I attended UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, where I was a Mark Felt Investigative Scholar under the mentorship of Lowell Bergman.
