Motion Graphics Editor
I am a multimedia journalist engaging the mobile news audience. To me, that means meeting them where they are and making truth and news as accessible as possible. My niche in the news world is a blend of my journalistic interests and my worst phone habits: explainers on TikTok. As a young media maker, I spend a lot of time studying the way my peers engage with online journalism and adjust my work accordingly. I currently make freelance animated vertical explainer videos.
I was a mentee of motion graphics under visual effects artist Richard Koci Hernandez, UC Berkeley's Bloomberg Chair. I've got bylines in The New York Times, Oakland North, and City on a Hill Press. I am a news assistant for the New York Times, working with a data team to track COVID-19 in correctional facilities and colleges. In June 2021, our team was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Public Service.
I'm known for having creative ideas and having an innovative eye. When I'm not submerged in the abyss that is Adobe AfterEffects, you will likely find me playing video games or in an art class.
