I grew up in Silicon Valley, attended Jewish day schools in Palo Alto, and caught the journalism bug early. I treasured my antique typewriter, a Hanukkah gift I received at age seven, and determined then that journalism would be my lifelong passion.

I moved to New York City when I was 18. I began writing for the Columbia Daily Spectator and interning at Glamour Magazine, Slate.com, MSNBC, and NBC News, all during my years as a student at Barnard College. I graduated in 2015 with a degree in American Studies, and an award-winning thesis on the genealogy of voices inside our digital devices, offering a contemporary theory on why our devices are so predominantly female-voiced, and the impact those voices carry in our daily lives.

From 2014-2018 I worked my way up the ladder at NBC News in 30 Rockefeller Center. I jumped from Morning Joe intern, to NBC Nightly News desk assistant, to network-wide associate producer for NBC News's nascent business and technology team.

As an associate producer, I became one of the news network’s go-to sources for news, contacts, and pitches on economic policy, retail trends, Wall Street volatility, and all things tech. I am most grateful for the freedom I was given to take the lead and develop stories from start to finish alongside a correspondent. These stories aired on NBC Nightly News, the TODAY Show, and MSNBC.

I moved to Bakersfield, CA in April 2018 for a chance at on-air reporting. I was a general assignment reporter every weekday at 5pm and 6pm for KBAK Eyewitness News.

In December 2020 I began reporting for KTVU, a true homecoming! I'm excited to deliver important information to Bay Area homes at a time when accurate and reliable journalism is more vital than ever, and eager to continue to report on business and tech from the place where so much of the industry started (and where I started), Silicon Valley.
