Media, Law, Poetry, Politics, History, Food, Disability, Technology, Travel, Lifestyle, Beauty As a producer at CNBC Digital Video's Markets & Politics team, I have been covering the intersection of business, policy, and climate for over a year and a half. I created and report for the "Weird Economy" series, which uncovers the invisible market forces behind everything from blood and dirt, to supply chain madness and counterfeit food. I also produce videos for the "Fed Notes" series, which explains the Federal Reserve's actions and impact on the economy. My mission is to inform and engage the audience with compelling and creative storytelling on the most pressing issues facing our society and planet. I have a master's degree in Business Journalism from Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, which I completed in 2021. Before joining CNBC, I worked as a digital production associate at ABC News, where I produced an hourly headline show on ABC News Live. I also participated in the Dow Jones News Fund for business reporting in New York City in 2017. I can roll a mean burrito. I am proud to be neurodivergent. I battle chronic illness day to day. I rescue hamsters and watch horror movies.
