I am a multimedia journalist living in Manhattan with my husband, covering breaking business news for the New York Times.
Previously, I reported for the Los Angeles Times. As a business reporter during the financial crisis, I covered the domino effect of the downturn, as well as auto recalls, commodity swings, data hacks and privacy, M&A deals, alternative energy, retail and more. Along with a colleague, I also wrote about the California economy, digging into stories about wages, labor, trade and entrepreneurship in the Golden State. We won a SABEW award for our small business reporting in 2014.
In the course of my career, I had bylines in Richmond Times-Dispatch, the San Francisco Bay Guardian and the Daily Californian at U.C. Berkeley, where I was editor-in-chief (Go Bears!). I interviewed former Taiwanese president Ma Ying-Jeou in Taipei, argan seed harvesters in rural Morocco, neighborhood activists in Athens and urban planners in Singapore. I have filmed and edited countless videos of factory floors and solar panels and shot many photos of minimum wage protests and product launches. I have spoken with sources using Mandarin and French.
I am an avid traveler and have visited dozens of countries in the past decade. Highlights include moving through Myanmar soon after the military junta was dissolved, trekking through Peru's Tipon ruins, rising above Valparaiso's murals in its urban elevators, training overnight across India and participating in Seville's Feria de Abril.
I hold an M.S. in journalism and an M.B.A. from Columbia University.
On days off, I like to roam through side streets hunting for street art, which I chronicle on my Saw The Sign blog.
