Growing up I wrote books, cutting up sheets of paper, typing on a manual typewriter and stapling them together. Writing has always been a passion, but the tools have changed.

I graduated from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at UNC Chapel Hill in 2009 and have been working as a digital journalist since.

I have a passion for journalism, storytelling and technology, and the way the three combine to convey information in new and interesting ways.
