San Jose, CA 95112
With 15 years in and out of newsrooms, I know what makes a good story. My portfolio goes beyond print -- with interactive features, maps, databases and more. Now, I've added sound and the special intimacy it brings to storytelling. You'll find my work on KALW and in the Silicon Valley Business Journal, the California Health Report, the San Jose Mercury News and beyond. I've done the occasional tape sync, helping out with an episode of Reply All. My work includes the discovery of faked crime reports entered into court proceedings, a look at a governor's dismal record of minority hires and a piece highlighting how changes to visa laws increased the number of migrants in California fields while providing them with fewer protections. I'm a fan of data, public record requests and darn good stories. I've written for the San Jose Mercury News, the Chicago Sun-Times (statehouse intern) and community papers along California's Central Coast. Oh, and I'm an Okie from Texas.
