My journalism career began at the PBS NewsHour where I worked as a broadcast desk assistant, web producer, and reporter/producer for politics until 2015. I focused largely on law, justice, and policing. Here is a selection of my production work for America’s most trusted news program:

I was outside the Supreme Court for the reaction to Obergefell v. Hodges, and produced and edited the 2-minute setup to a discussion segment:

Same-sex couples gain equal right to marry | June 26, 2015

 

Immediately after the non-indictment of the officer involved in Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Mo., I produced reactions from the ground. I simultaneously published an article announcing the grand jury’s decision:

Understanding the grand jury ruling on Michael Brown’s death | November 24, 2014

 

In the months after the Ferguson protests, I produced a number of discussions about policing and criminal justice reform, including:

How do communities increase accountability and rebuild trust after police shootings? | February 10, 2015

How can Ferguson law enforcement break a pattern of bias? | March 3, 2015

Will events in Ferguson help define the future of American policing? | March 12, 2015

 

In the summer of 2014, I helped cover the escalating conflict between Israel and Hamas, beginning with a segment I prepared and pushed to air in the hour after Israel announced it would commence a ground invasion into Gaza:

Divisions between Egypt and Hamas complicate prospects for Mideast cease-fire | July 17, 2014

Debating the tactics and ethics of warfare on both sides of Mideast conflict | July 24, 2014

What’s making Mideast violence seem intractable | July 28, 2014

Online war of words: To amplify message, Israel and Hamas fire up social media | August 3, 2014

 

I also produced a number of “Shares” videos – little snippets of visual and Internet culture, repackaged for the NewsHour audience. Here are two of my favorites:
