About me

0087I got my start as a reporter in 2008 at New Jersey’s Asbury Park Press, a storied old daily that covers two big Jersey Shore counties. A couple of months of covering the Saturday cop shifts later, I was ruined forever for any other kind of job.

I left the Press to join online hyperlocal news network Patch.com as a local editor in 2010, covering a coastal town of about 20,000. In 2012, I was hired as the news editor at C-VILLE Weekly, a now-25-year-old alt weekly in my hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia. My team’s coverage of local government, campus sexual assault at the University of Virginia and a public hospital’s aggressive legal action against impoverished patient debtors won awards from the Association of Alternative Newsmedia and the Virginia Press Association.

I’m now a master’s student at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, reporting on health and environmental topics in the Bay Area.
