Digital Producer

I'm a Times fellow and split my time evenly between web producing and data roles. I graduated from UF in 2019 with a Bachelor's in Journalism with concentrations in data and political science. When I'm not working, you can find me backpacking in the mountains. Hobbies include bread-baking and astrophotography. Fun fact: I once hiked the Appalachian Trail.
