Experienced in covering hot-shot and long-shot musicians, wire hanger sculptors, moms getting tattooed for the very first time (it's never too late), roller derby queens, Food Network celebrity chefs and California politicians.
Just completed an internship on the Arts Desk at NPR in Washington, D.C. In February 2013, I will be moving to Russia to study language and art history at St. Petersburg State University and The Hermitage on a scholarship from The School of Russian and Asian Studies.
Was previously an intern with the Columbia, Mo., NPR-affiliate KBIA in parternship with Columbia Faith and Values and Religion News Service. Prior to that, an intern with the NPR/PRX-distributed audio documentary and multimedia program State of the Re:Union and KQED's The California Report.
I studied Russian at the University of Missouri and at the Indiana University Summer Workshop in Slavic and Eastern European Languages.
