While currently working as the Examiner's Breaking News Editor, I've got a long history of reporting in and outside of the Beltway. I've spent my time digging through bills, talking to lawmakers, roaming the halls of Congress and digging through regulations for stories that affect real people outside of Washington, D.C., not just the movers and shakers inside the Beltway. Read all my most recent work here.

My top stories for the Examiner:



  • Coordinating digital news coverage of politics from CNN's Washington, DC bureau in the afternoon. Help to oversee a team of five breaking news reporters while also working with CNN editors and reporters from around the world.
  • I also edit mobile alerts and social media language on political news.
  • I coordinate coverage of political events with our TV team.
