Writing always intrigued me growing up. I discovered my love of language reading the Los Angeles Times Kids section and purchasing fashion magazines on vacations. When I bought my first camera after graduating high school, photography became the next big obsession. In college, I began writing scripts and producing segments for radio. I still dabble in code, because I find designing webpages fascinating. I like to do everything.
The same can be said of my media experience: in my short journalism career, I have worked as a breaking news reporter, magazine fact-checker, content writer, long-form multimedia journalist and freelancer. I did much of this while serving as two-time editor of UC Santa Barbar’s alt-weekly, The Bottom Line, leading the publication to its first national accolades.
In August, I will join the Houston Chronicle’s business desk, for an inaugural beat to be revealed.
