I’m a Video Producer at CNN Politics in Washington, D.C. where I shoot and edit original videos and write stories. I also assist the Digital Production team with creating social elements for videos across our flagship accounts. Previously I was a video and web producer at The Washington Post where I reported/shot/edited original pieces like this one, produced segments like this one, and created social videos like this one. I was also on the web team for PostTV that is responsible for promoting and licensing videos and running our social media operations. And I was the producer for “John Kelly’s Washington” column videos.

Before that I was a Kaiser Permanente Health Policy Journalism Fellow (watch my web series, Distance to Cure, on health technology’s impact on Native American communities here) and a Kaiser Media Intern working as a Health Reporter at The Plain Dealer in Cleveland.

At the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism (where I focused in Multimedia and Television), I was a Multimedia Graduate Student Researcher and a co-author of the Mobile Reporting Field Guide (download our iBook for free).

I’m excited by work at the intersection of storytelling and technology. I was a part of the Online News Association’s Google-sponsored Student Newsroom and a Facebook Content Strategy Fellow.

I’ve had experience reporting on a variety of topics (health, politics, breaking news, and arts & culture) at the  local, state, and national level for regional newspapers (Contra Costa Times, The Bay Citizen, Oakland North), community radio (KCSB 91.9 FM), and broadcast television (NBC Nightly News in Los Angeles, ABC7’s 7 On Your Side in San Francisco, and KTVU Channel 2 News in Oakland). I’ve covered everything from Obama’s campaign in Northeast Ohio, the International AIDS Conference, Occupy Oakland, Michael Jackson’s passing, and interviewed Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum.

I’ve received awards for my work from the Radio Television Digital News Association, the Sacramento Press Club, and the Asian American Journalists Association.

I’ve studied at the University of Cambridge and in Shanghai. I’m originally from the San Francisco Bay Area.
