Professional Experience

I am a former daily news and politics reporter, specializing in content creation, investigative reporting and explainer articles. I have covered everything from presidential elections to cryptocurrency. As such, I am known for digging deep into a story, finding everything that can be said or learned about it and presenting it fairly in a way that is conversational and engaging to read.
