I am a reporter with experience covering breaking news, city government, political campaigns, higher education, marijuana, natural resources and the environment. At the Orange County Register I write about the city of Laguna Niguel and all things south Orange County, from development projects to outdoor sports.
Prior to the Register, I worked as a do-all reporter/intern at the Eureka Times-Standard, a 23,000-circulation six-day newspaper. The Times-Standard is the lone daily covering California’s far North Coast.
In June 2012, I graduated from Humboldt State University in Arcata. I studied news-editorial journalism and geography, and served as sports editor, opinion editor and reporter at The Lumberjack student-run newspaper. In my final semester, I was the investigative reporting teaching assistant. I helped orchestrate an investigation into rising student fees in the California State University system.
Outside of journalism, I compete as an elite category two amateur cyclist. In college I raced at a national level for the Humboldt State Cycling Team, worked as team president, and helped to develop our team into a regional and national power.
