My Story

I’m a Texanadian born and raised in Ontario, Canada, that has been working in the Lone Star State for years to find the stories that matter. I’ve been in and out of Central Texas since I was a child, and enjoy chronicling art, history, music, family, local government, and law enforcement.

From freelance to media work, I know ethical guidelines and the value of newsworthiness in a story, in addition to the skills to make it come to life.

As a broadcaster, photojournalist, audio and video editor, and writer, I use my skills to report with veracity and understanding on events that affect lives around us.
