A Brief Bio:
I began my career in 1987 in London as a freelance reporter on the arts for the BBC World Service Radio. I then returned to America, and continued as an arts reporter for KCRW, an NPR station in Santa Monica. While there, I reported and produced a national award-winning documentary on Japanese-American internment during World War II. Shortly after, I was accepted to a National Public Radio residency, which brought me to Washington, D.C. and to Boston to report stories for NPR's Performance Today. I later attended the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University. After that, I remained in New York City for 9 years, during which time I worked as a reporter for WNYC TV, a PBS station, covering the arts and culture, and for WNYC radio, an NPR station, where I covered local politics. I also worked as a correspondent for a nationally televised PBS program called Freedom Speaks, which focused on the media. I then moved to Maine, and worked as a reporter for New Hampshire Public Television, where I covered the New Hampshire presidential primary season, and interviewed the major presidential candidates. I also participated as a panelist in nationally televised presidential debates, hosted by Peter Jennings and Tim Russert. Following the conclusion of the New Hampshire primary season, I moved to Boston, where I am now living. From this base, I cover the idea beat as a freelance reporter for a variety of newspapers, including The Christian Science Monitor, The Boston Globe and The Cambridge Chronicle. I am also writing a column for my neighborhood paper, The Beacon Hill Times, called Single In The City.
