Me covering municipal government demolitions and mass evictions along the Mampang river in south Jakarta, Indonesia, circa 2014.

I’m a student and freelance journalist based in Seattle Washington. I’ve covered government sponsored mass evictions of slum residents in Jakarta, Indonesia, the day Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was shouted off a Seattle stage by black lives matter protesters, the local movement for safe injection sites, and the segregationist origins of Seattle’s urban planning. My writing and photography have appeared in the Jakarta PostSeattle Met magazine, and The Stranger’s SLOG. Most recently I was freelancing regularly for the Capitol Hill Seattle Blog. I am currently working towards my bachelor’s degree in journalism and political science at the University of Washington.
