Welcome! It’s nice to meet you. I’m an award-winning freelance reporter for Variety and other outlets who also moderates live events.
My Variety article about productions filming in gang-controlled areas won first place at the 2019 National Arts and Entertainment Journalism Awards through the LA Press Club. It was in the feature story under 1,000 words category and is the only time that an article from the Artisans section has ever won.
You may read it here.
I was a back-to-back finalist in 2019 and 2020 for the LA Press Club’s Southern California Journalism Awards. In 2019 the nomination was for the article that went on to win the National award later that year. This year’s recognition was for an investigative story in Variety about social media influencers challenging union set photographers for jobs. You can go straight to it here.
The photo above is from an exclusive behind-the-scenes visit to Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge six weeks ahead of its opening; I wrote an article about the design process. To read this or any of my other Variety stories you can do so here.
