4 years ago, a Hawaii girl living in the Middle East flew to Missouri with two suitcases and a backpack to learn the ins and outs of journalism today.
a digital content producer from Hawaii based in Columbia, Missouri currently invested in developing consumable online content to shed light on what’s important. I have focused my interests and love of multimedia production into digital strategy, online audience development and social content creation for podcasts, a national media enterprise, an NPR-affiliated radio station and a weekly radio show on international affairs.
in social video and audio, with skills in a range of software including Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Illustrator, Final Cut Pro and more. Alongside this, I have reported and produced work for an array of newsrooms in the city including the Columbia Missourian (city newspaper), KBIA 93.1 (mid-Missouri’s NPR affiliate), PolitiFact and the Global Journalist (a radio talk show on press freedom issues).
I worked as a multimedia intern for Scripps News at their bureau in Washington D.C. where I spearheaded social content for the Scripps investigative team, creating digital campaigns alongside newsroom leaders. I also helped produce the Decode DC podcast on a weekly basis.
I continue to work for Scripps as a freelancer in digital production. I also work as a liaison between the Global Journalist and an online engagement course, where I lead teams of journalism students to produce digital content for the show. I am also part of a team of journalists working to create social campaigns for a website and podcast, Science Friday, in an effort to reach and educate those living in a post-truth era.
I hope to continue these endeavors as well as to one day pursue more long-form reporting. As a student and a working professional, my passion truly is to hone my skills in the crazy, colorful world that is digital journalism and will do (or drop) anything to get where I need to be.
