Hey, I’m Hannah.

I found my love for writing in sixth grade when I filled my first diary front to back.

Since then, I traveled to South Africa to report on gender-based violence, reported on the Hill in Washington, D.C., completed a Pulitzer Center fellowship, spent two years producing and reporting at POLITICO … and now I work at National Geographic.

Some background: I grew up in a small farm town in south Jersey, fishing for flounder in the summers. I moved to Tampa, Florida, in 2013 and traveled to Melbourne, Australia, for six months in 2016, where I lived like a local and explored the entire east coast. In 2019, I moved to Chicago for a year for grad school, and I currently live between D.C. and Tampa.

My laid back attitude and love for water, combined with my determined mindset and eager energy, play into my quirky thoughts and exciting ideas. When I’m not reporting on a story, you can find me working out in a CrossFit gym, in a local coffee shop reading Patti Smith, or hiking on a mountain.
