Award-winning multimedia journalist with experience in podcasts, video, motion graphics, photography and reporting. Named one of the 25 rising stars of journalism under the age of 35 by Editor and Publisher. Currently based in Manchester, England.
Julia is the creator of the award-winning “Today in Pa” podcast, a weekday news briefing devoted to all things Pennsylvania from PennLive.com. She hosted and produced the podcast through Jan. 8, 2021.
Political protests, music festivals, NFL football games — if there is a crowd, Julia is there with her camera. The photos in the above slideshow include moments from the Made in America music festival, protests over the election of President Donald Trump in 2016, the Philadelphia Marathon, Bastille Day at Eastern State Penitentiary and a delicious meal at Tradesman’s restaurant.
Julia is well-versed in Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects. With those skills, she creates short, digestible videos that explain major news stories. She captured much of the 2016 presidential campaign trail in Pennsylvania (a key state in Donald Trump’s victory that year), shot microdocumentaries and covered multiple red carpets.
Julia’s award-winning reporting goes across a variety of beats, from business to crime to arts and culture. Her most recent work includes an investigation into Philadelphia’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, an enterprise story on the lack of diversity in the tech world, and a piece examining the mystery and appeal of Trader Joe’s, a grocery store with a cult following.
