I'm a breaking news reporter for the South Bay at the Bay Area's wire service, Bay City News Service.

I was the Editor in Chief of the Daily Nexus, UC Santa Barbara's independent student newspaper est. 1930, and I graduated in December 2017 with a degree in Communication after working at newspapers in Santa Barbara, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

I can be reached quickly through email and phone call, but I respond best to cats and strong coffee. Live music, candor and food outings make me the most happy.
