Some other cool stuff:

I helped New England Cable News create its inaugural New Hampshire presidential primary candidate tracker, an interactive database tracking 2016 hopefuls' visits to the Granite State. 

At NBC, I covered the Olympics, midterm and mayoral elections, and high-profile national and international breaking news events, including the Navy Yard shooting, the Ebola crisis, and California wildfires. 

I was a member of the team that reported and wrote Refinery29's award-winning Daughters of Paradise series on Syrian refugee women. 

Love avocado toast? You might enjoy this story I wrote for Comstocks magazine in 2013. 

I've covered five national conventions! A few examples of the pieces I reported are available here, here, here, here, and here. 

My work as chief correspondent of The Sacramento Bee's Capitol Alert blog was recognized with a Center for California Studies award for best political blogging.

I once went on CBS to talk about a scandal involving a hot mic, sex acts, and a boastful politician (who wasn't Donald Trump).
