I’m a University of Texas journalism graduate whose work has been featured in the Washington Post, Houston Chronicle, Texas Tribune, Austin American-Statesman and more. I’m currently a Washington correspondent for the Dallas Morning News through a UT/DMN reporting fellowship.

Much of my focus as a journalist has been on politics and investigative reporting. I covered two state legislative sessions from Hearst’s Austin bureau and spent five months contributing to the Texas Tribune’s Bordering on Insecurity project. My stories on border corruption and immigration in 2016 won a national Society of Professional Journalist’s award. I spent the summer of 2016 as an investigative reporter for News21 a national investigative journalism project housed at Arizona State University. The “Voting Wars” project won several awards, including an EPPY, Edward R. Murrow, and an Investigative Reporters and Editors award.
