About Me

Amber

As of May 2014, I am the Washington correspondent for the Las Vegas Sun, where I cover the Nevada delegation as the one-woman DC bureau for the award-winning paper.

Before that, I wrote about national politics in the digital age for the DC bureau of Digital First Media’s centralized news team, known as Thunderdome.

From 2011-2013, I managed the website for a 134-year-old family owned daily newspaper in metro Boston, where I created multimedia, spearheaded web content and played a pivotal role in transitioning the paper to a pay wall. I also regularly chatted live with hosts of Monocle Magazine’s 24-hour internet radio station, Monocle 24, about goings-on in Boston.

When I was based in Taiwan in 2010-2011, I chased typhoons and potential tsunamis, interviewed presidents and presidential candidates, covered China and Taiwan’s free-trade agreement negotiations and explored off the beaten track for travel and food features. I have bylines in The Washington Post, ForeignPolicy.com, Christian Science Monitor, Monocle Magazine, National Geographic Traveler blog, Taiwan Business Topics Magazine and Taipei Times. I’ve also covered Capitol Hill as a reporter and intern in Washington, DC.

I speak intermediate-to-advanced Spanish and beginner Chinese. I am proficient in Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Avid, Creative Suites, Google Fusion Tables, writing for web and creating video and radio stories.
