I’m a data visualization analyst, freelance reporter and data scientist in training, based in Portland, Maine. I was previously a full-time investigative and business reporter.
I grew up in the suburb of Diamond Bar, California, before coming to Maine for college and staying in Portland. I started my journalism career as the first local editor for Patch.com in my hometown. I came back to Maine for a staff job at a small, afternoon daily paper in Brunswick. I grew a fondness for data reporting at Mainebiz before three years covering Maine’s economy and investigations at the Bangor Daily News.
I’m the business intelligence analyst for the accounting firm Baker Newman Noyes. I’m also a master’s student at the Roux Institute, a Portland-based program of Northeastern University.
As a freelance reporter, I contribute to the nonprofit Maine Monitor and Mainer.
