I am a journalism graduate student at UW-Madison, though I have a global scope for my blog and my life. This blog is a place for me to explore my professional and personal interest in people’s stories throughout the world — including, of course, a special interest in stories from the margins of mainstream media and consciousness.
I serve as the managing editor for MadisonCommons.org and contribute to BestThinking.com. I now freelance for the Isthmus newsweekly in Madison, Wisconsin, where I recently completed a two semester internship. I reported for WORT-fm local news show In Our Backyard from January 2011 through August 2012.
Travelling remains my favorite hobby and passion, but I also care for French and English literature, music (folk, indie, rock, world, fusion styles, etc), yoga, and ultimate Frisbee.
