About Emily

I'm a producer, journalist and documentary filmmaker. I’ve produced in Myanmar, Korea, India, Guam, above the Arctic Circle in rural Alaska, in the cab of a semi truck, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Nacogdoches, Texas. I’ve interviewed Bill Nye, violent Buddhist monks, and mothers who have lost children to gun violence. I've won numerous awards for the documentary series Untold America which I produced for AJ+ / Al Jazeera and my content is regularly viewed by millions of people online.

  • How K-Pop & Selfies Transformed Plastic Surgery

    • Reporter / Journalist
    • Field Producer
    • Post-Production Manager

    In South Korea, one in three women under 30 has had plastic surgery — most often to enlarge their eyes, and now to slim their faces too. It’s a trend that’s influenced by selfie apps like Snow and Facetune, and K-pop stars like SixBomb and Kwanghee. And now Americans are also taking part. Untold America travels to Seoul, South Korea, to tour a plastic surgery clinic in Gangnam, talk to a Korean feminist fighting the country’s rigid beauty standards with the Escape the Corset movement, and interview a young American who flew from New York to have V-line surgery in Seoul.
