I’m a business and technology reporter for the Austin American-Statesman. I cover the city’s startup scene and companies like Dell Technologies, Central Texas’ largest employer.

I graduated from the University of Texas-Austin in 2017, where I spent my time at internships, fellowships and The Daily Texan basement.

My work has been featured in the Washington Post, Dallas Morning News, Houston Chronicle, Texas Tribune, Austin American-Statesman and more.

Much of my focus as a journalist has been on politics and investigative reporting. I reported from the Washington bureau of the Dallas Morning News and covered two state legislative sessions from Hearst’s Austin bureau.

I also 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. During the summer of 2016, I was 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.
