A little background

I'm a reporter with The Ellsworth American covering eastern Hancock County and western Washington County in northern Maine. I report on issues from blueberry markets to criminal justice to gravel pit operations. I also make short documentaries for the paper. Formerly, I was a freelance reporter and videographer based in New York City, with a year working for Alex Gibney at Jigsaw Productions, and graduated from Columbia Journalism School's Stabile Center for Investigative Reporting and documentary programs.

Currently, I'm working on a series of short documentaries for Columbia Business School's ReEntry Acceleration Program, focusing on issues related to re-entry after incarceration. The first episode of that series follows Damon Rodriguez, and can be seen here. The next installments will be released throughout 2018-2019.

I also freelance currently in film and print, where I can from my gig in Maine.

Reporting interests:

  • FCPA & money laundering
  • antitrust
  • climate change
  • poverty & international development
  • immigration

I've served as a news reporter for newspapers in Maine and North Carolina. I developed an interest in deeper, immersive stories, which is how I became interested in documentary filmmaking. I made two long-form films in college as independent projects; one about health care in India, and the other about climate change in Sri Lanka.
