Covering city goverment sponsored demolitions and evictions along the Mampang in Jakarta, circa 2014.

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

I’m a Seattle-based student and freelance journalist. 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 likes of the Jakarta PostPubliCola and Seattle Met, and The Stranger’s SLOG. Currently, I contribute to the Capitol Hill Seattle Blog and am working towards my bachelor’s degree in journalism and political science at the University of Washington. When I’m not reporting (or studying) I’m bussing tables or talking to my roommate’s cats.
