About Nik

I’m a journalist based in Oakland, California. I work as a radio newscast intern for KQED. I am also the copy editor and fact checker for Santa Cruz Local and the audio engineer and editor of our Spanish-language news podcast Noticias Watsonville.

My reporting interests including policing and incarceration, immigration and border policy, environmental inequality, housing and homelessness, and the stories to be told where these issues intersect.
