I am a three-time Emmy award-winning producer based in the Washington D.C. area. My professional philosophy: story rules over all else. I believe the evolution of media content to the web allows good stories, told well, to find a wider, more diverse, more engaged audience. Currently I produce and manage interactives, video, podcasts, and photography for CFR.org, the website for the Council on Foreign Relations. In 2008, as part of a team of new media journalists, I won a News and Documentary Emmy award for Crisis Guide: Darfur, an interactive multimedia presentation that takes a look at the genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan. Then again in 2009, I won a Business and Financial Reporting Emmy award for Crisis Guide: The Global Economy. Recently, I and my team won our third Emmy award for Crisis Guide: Iran. I have a BA from SUNY at Buffalo in anthropology, and an MFA in film production from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts.
