I am a writer, filmmaker, and entrepreneur from Atlanta, Georgia. I’m currently working for CNN.

I am writer, co-director, and producer of a feature-length documentary film called Forgotten Plague.

I am founder and president of the Blue Ribbon Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to fostering an national dialogue toward preventing and curing neuro-immune diseases.

In 2012, I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Georgia with degrees in English and International Affairs. I also earned certificates in interdisciplinary writing, global studies, and children’s literature. In 2011 I founded the Georgia Political Review and served as editor-in-chief. I’ve written for USA Today College, The Daily Beast, Real Clear Politics, The American Conservative, The Macon Telegraph, The Houston Home Journal, The Red and Black, The Georgia Political Review, Partisans, and The Citizen. My poetry has appeared in Falling Hard: 100 Love Poems by Teenagers, published by Candlewick Press.
