The Hill

I started working at The Hill in Washington, D.C., in October 2017 as a breaking news reporter. I typically write more than a dozen stories each day about and federal government and national politics.


I find and pitch stories to editors, and in some cases work to get posts on our website within minutes. You can find some examples of my work

Timeline: Trump, Cohen, Stormy Daniels and the $130,000 payment

After Rudy Giuliani acknowledged President Trump repaid his attorney for a hush money payment to an adult-film star over an alleged affair, I pitched this story to provide a timeline on all the denials, acknowledgments and explanations surrounding the issue. 

Trump tears into new year with tweetstorm

I wrote this story after President Trump fired off a round of tweets on his first day back in Washington for 2018. The story looked at the scope of his messages, and why it was significant the president took to social media to start the new year.

Trump: 'Take the guns first, go through due process second'

I wrote this story in less than 10 minutes after President Trump said he favors confiscating weapons from dangerous people, even if it violates due process. The story led the homepage for the next few hours, and garnered tens of thousands of shares.

GOP debates releasing controversial memo

This story focused on where various Congressional Republicans stood on the effort to release a classified memo alleging political bias within the FBI. I wrote it after compiling lawmakers' remarks on Sunday talk shows and earlier in the week.
