About

Hi, I’m Kyle. (Yes! A female Kyle.)

I’m a multimedia journalist currently based in Tel Aviv, Israel, where I’m a reporting fellow at Haaretz (see my latest work here). I’m also available for freelance work.

My past experience includes internships at WNYC/New York Public Radio (for Midday on WNYC), the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and doing research and editing for Ian Urbina, an investigative reporter at The New York Times.

I finished my master’s in international reporting at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Journalism in December 2017. I also hold a B.A. in international affairs and geography from The George Washington University. I have previously lived and studied in Germany (Ich spreche auch Deutsch), Scotland and India.

My pre-journalism background is in sustainable transportation and urban planning. I was the managing editor of TheCityFix daily blog while at the World Resources Institute and the first full-time grant writer for Transportation Alternatives, which helped bring public bike share and the 25 mph speed limit to New York City.

I love exploring and being out in the field, but when I’m not reporting, I enjoy running, hiking, seeing live music and eating my way through new cities.
