Objective reporting in the most austere environments on earth.


I have gone on assignment to cover the Standing Rock oil pipeline protest, embedded with U.S. Special Forces in Afghanistan, and even profiled influential people like Travis Pastrana and Jim O’Heir.

My stories have been published in a variety of publications both digital and print (with a focus on narrative long form), which include breaking news that has been picked up by Business Insider, Army TimesDefense OneWashington TimesWashington Post, and Stars & Stripes.
