Video Work

I report, shoot, edit and produce compelling visual content about anything from economics to matrimony.

I work for CNN Digital Labs, a team tasked with rethinking storytelling

on the web, television and in the live event space.

I am currently working on a longform, interactive project about exonerations.

 

I just spent four years working for The New York Times.

I’ve delved into fair housing, race, relationships, politics, business and economics.

I have dual French Citizenship and the proud daughter of a single mom.

I am a geek, Jane-en-ite, and follower of ramen shops.

HIGHLIGHTS OF MY WORK:

I worked on this series with CNN’s Tanzina Vega. We decided we needed to find the people who were trying to have a different conversation about race.

 

I grew up in affordable housing and have an intense interest in how housing issues shape and perpetuate economic divides. This story took me on a journey with a young man, fresh out of prison, navigating a corrupt system called ‘three-quarter-housing.’

 

 

I followed two young moms as they studied to make a midlife career change, much like myself.  The Affordable Care Act, if it survives, is creating opportunities for institutions like community colleges to reform wide sections of the workforce.

 

 

I produced a half-hour television show for CNN called “Agility in Action.”  My favorite story took me to the middle of rural Missouri to interview a couple just settling into their 80s. Leroy and RuthAnne use an iPad along with mobile medical technology to talk back and forth with nurses who are over an hour away.
