I graduated in 2016 with a B.A. in Global Cultural Studies, a certificate in Documentary Studies, and a minor in English. While at Duke, I ran the literary magazine, wrote for the student newspaper, and worked on documentary projects in ten different countries.
After graduating, I moved to Lagos, Nigeria, on a Fulbright scholarship, where I conducted oral history interviews with women, wrote journalistic essays, and went out dancing weekly at Fela Kuti’s Shrine.
Now, I live in New Orleans, where I work in journalism, radio, and documentary production.
I've reported for The Appeal, The Nation, Popula, Current Affairs, The Assembly, In These Times, Scalawag, Africa Is a Country, The New Republic, Atlas Obscura, INDY Week, and elsewhere. I’ve had the opportunity to investigate sheriff’s offices and megachurches alike, interview controversial politicians and striking migrants, and elucidate complex systems, from the economies of dumps to the bureaucracies of probation and parole. My favorite story I’ve worked on is about a billionaire-funded private city in Lagos, Nigeria—and its connection to British colonialism, oil-funded dictatorships, and state executions.
As a producer, I've worked with The Guardian, Quartz, Investigation Discovery, Audible, the Southern Foodways Alliance, Plan B Entertainment, and others.
My current goal is to form a cooperatively-owned production company with my friends.
