Political Unit Journalist, September 2023-present

Assignment Desk Assistant, October 2021-September 2023

Political Unit Intern, June 2021-September 2021

I cover elections, campaigns, and polling for ABC News platforms, with a focus on the 2024 presidential elections. I also assist with political research and production for the Politics and Assignment desks.

At the Washington Assignment Desk, I worked on field producing for World News Tonight and Good Morning America, production  coordination, media ingesting, and other tasks. Throughout 2022, I reported on the midterm elections and tracked vote counts and data with ABC's political team. I've also pitched and co-produced a broadcast story, and have filled in as an assignment editor.

During summer 2021, I reported on elections, campaigns, and polling for newsgathering efforts and ABC News' website. I also researched political issues, such as redistricting, for long-term projects at ABC News and FiveThirtyEight.

Political Reporting Intern, summer 2020

I reported mainly on Wisconsin's Congressional delegation, including through press events, House/Senate live stream coverage, and other reporting, in order to keep Wisconsinites informed. I also helped out with the paper's 2020 Elections coverage and other stories. This included calling up voters and politicians for interviews; and delving into issues facing Wisconsinites, such as broadband access and unemployment insurance. My work was featured in the Journal Sentinel and in other newspapers within the USA TODAY-Wisconsin network.

At the Jerusalem Post, I covered a wide range of topics--from protests in downtown Jerusalem to meetings in the Knesset (Israeli parliament) to light shows and museum exhibits. I interviewed in both English and Hebrew, the latter of which I have a working proficiency in; I spoke with CEOs, parliament members, professors, and wine sellers while reporting, among many others.

News Editor, January - June 2020 

Editor and reporter roles since October 2017

For The Chicago Maroon, the University of Chicago's independent student newspaper, I reported on campus innovations and controversies, city news, and profiled and interviewed newsmakers in the community. I also brok news about campus policy and supermarket openings!

I was the Maroon's beat reporter on the formerly UChicago-owned Yerkes Observatory. 

As a news editor, I was one of the leaders of the news section, making sure our newspaper's coverage is top-notch by working closely with reporters, as well as helping with both content editing and social media management.

Israel correspondent, December 2016

The Jewish Link newspapers are mostly hyperlocal and Jewish-community focused. I've written for both the Link's New Jersey and Bronx, Westchester, and Connecticut papers. My reporting for the Link includes some of my earliest professional clips, and helped me develop both an appreciation for community-centric news and hyperlocal reporting.
