I’m Ally – a storyteller, artist, and food enthusiast. I've worked for the Los Angeles Times, North State Journal and The Daily Tar Heel. I became interested in storytelling when I discovered its ability to connect people.  The more we know about one another, the more empathetic we become.

As a classically trained ballerina and modern dancer, I grew up speaking through movement. I learned that words cannot always tell the whole story. As a journalist, I’ve found that my graphics fill the spaces that words leave behind.

In addition to visual storytelling, I enjoy climbing mountains in the winter, bonding with people over good food, and wearing sparkly socks.
