a newly minted Washingtonian who loves news, public media & Video


What I'm good at: identifying + engaging audiences through social media, written + visual storytelling, finding things on sale


What I'm reading: The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen + The Paris Vagabond by Jean-Paul Clebert


What I'm listening to: the podcast, Heavyweight (if anyone can help me meet Jonathan Goldstein irl I'd be eternally grateful)


Ask me about: art, the Vietnam War, any religion, the best place in town for a burrito and especially race: it's my bread, butter and jam


What I do for fun: you can find me making one second a day videosblogging about my travels, adding clips to my portfolio, taking photos, exploring, scribbling in my journal, obsessing over my cat Winston.
