I'm a journalist based in New York City, with over 20 years of experience reporting domestically and internationally. I cover breaking news and enterprise reporting on politics and government, immigration and race relations. My stories have appeared in various news outlets in the U.S. and abroad, including New York Daily News, Yahoo! News, The Jersey Journal and Public Radio International, among others, and have been translated into various languages.
I have been a recipient of a number of journalism awards and fellowships, including the New York Times Press Fellowship, Radio Television News Foundation and RIAS German/American Exchange Fellowship for Journalists and the USC Annenberg National Health Journalism Fellowship. I attended Harvard University, University of the Philippines, and Columbia University, where I was awarded a Charles H. Revson Fellowship and received my master’s degrees in public administration and journalism.
