Reporter/All Things Considered Host

I’ve has always been fascinated with radio, from competing in the 'radio broadcasting' category for my middle school forensics team, to DJ'ing a late night college radio show at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin where I earned my Political Science degree. 

Most recently I was the Public Affairs/ News Manger at KUVO FM as well as the local Denver host of PRI’s “The Takeaway” [a morning news show]. I started my career as an Assistant Producer for the multi-award winning Kelly, Mudflap and JoJo Morning Show on KYGO FM.

I’ve covered many local events including the Windsor, CO tornado, the 2008 Democratic National Convention, and the 2010 Four Mile Canyon fire.
