This is a photo of me as a 5-year-old living in Jerusalem. As you can see, I still have the same Spock-like ears but none of the same teeth.

In 2015, while getting my degree in media studies,

I won a competition to speak at a TEDx conference about social-emotional learning and research I did for the National Science Foundation. That was my first foray into storytelling on a big platform and that experience inspired me to pursue it professionally.

Since 2018, I've been working as a video producer for Optimist Films, making short-form documentaries focusing on social justice issues. In 2019, I joined KPCC 89.3, the NPR Los Angeles affiliate, as an on-call assistant producer. At the station, I've reported and produced stories for programs including The Frame, Take Two, AirTalk and FilmWeek

In addition to my audio and video work, I also make editorial illustrations for outlets like The Boston Globe, AARP, Longreads and Gothamist, and write for publications like New York Magazine, InStyle, The Counter, Bello Collective and LAist

I love to collaborate with people across all creative fields on storytelling — shoot me an email and let's connect!
