As an international journalist driven by narrative features and investigative work, I've ranged from Maine's stately Governor's Mansion to the mud hut of a witch doctor in Sierra Leone. When I write, my goal is to immerse the reader into the subject's world while telling a story with nuance and meaning. I enjoy finding unexplored topics, and bringing fresh perspective to existing topics.
