I’m a reporter, videographer, and producer who focuses on US politics and the countries of the former Soviet Union.

My work has appeared in BuzzFeed News, the New York Times, PBS NewsHour, Al Jazeera, the Diplomat, Hmm Daily, CNN.com, the Christian Science Monitor, Bedford + Bowery, and the New York Transatlantic, among other publications. As a freelance contractor, I have worked with World Learning, Central European University, Stony Brook University, and the Center for Civilians in Conflict.

I have dual master’s degrees in journalism and Russian & Slavic Studies from New York University and a bachelor’s in international relations from Brown University.

Before switching to journalism, I worked at World Learning as digital communications director and the International Crisis Group as a communications officer. I have shot and produced videos in locations across Europe, Africa, and Asia.

In my free time, I like to bike long distances and photograph industrial landscapes. I live in Brooklyn.
