Bio

I’m an award-winning investigative journalist at WITF in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania with a background in television, radio, and digital reporting.

A natural gas drilling rig in northeastern Pennsylvania.

I cover state policy around energy and the environment–with a focus on Marcellus Shale natural gas development– for StateImpact Pennsylvania. The project is in-depth, data-driven public media collaboration between WITF and WHYY in Philadelphia.

My work airs on public radio stations throughout Pennsylvania and is frequently picked up nationally by NPR shows including Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Weekend Edition.

I recently won a national Edward R. Murrow award for my coverage of Pennsylvania’s natural gas industry.

Before joining StateImpact Pennsylvania, I was a multimedia reporter for WMHT in Albany, New York. I appeared regularly on the station’s statewide public affairs TV show, New York NOW, and covered everything from Albany’s nanotechnology sector, to the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy, and the debate over the state’s moratorium on hydraulic fracturing.

My work at WMHT was part of the Innovation Trail— a collaborative among six public stations, covering the economy of upstate New York. My reports aired on PBS and NPR stations throughout the state including WNYC and WNET Thirteen in New York City.

I was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and previously worked as a reporter and anchor for television stations in Lancaster and Casper, Wyoming. I began my broadcasting career as an intern on the assignment desk at WBZ-TV in Boston.
