About me

Former aid worker turned journalist with a passion for covering stories that challenge and expand my understanding of the world.

I specialize in issues of global health, international aid and development, and nonprofit accountability and transparency, particularly on the African continent.  

I have a Master of Public Health (2013) and a Bachelor of Liberal Arts (2008) from the University of Minnesota. 

My current resting place is in Minneapolis, Minn.

Painting, riding motorcycles, Paul Simon, African history and wandering around the world.
