Biography

I’m here to tell the story. I’m interested in stories of people who have overcome struggles in their lives, stories of government misuse of money or power, stories of success, failure, love, war and everything else that makes up our news and lives everyday.

Before I can tell those stories, here’s...

What was your first job as a journalist?

Writing at my college paper where I later was editor-in-chief. I learned to do every job in the newsroom and fell in love with the industry.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

No, but it's on my wish list!

How is social media changing news?

Social media makes news faster, more interactive and more of a conversation - but it is still up the journalists to get the story right.
