Writing and editing always intrigued me growing up. 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 three years, I have worked for a city newspaper, regional magazine, daily news website, newsroom diversity program, and freelanced for several other publications. I did this all while serving as editor-in-chief of UC Santa Barbara’s nationally recognized alt-weekly, The Bottom Line.
I currently work at the San Francisco Chronicle on the metro desk, covering breaking news and Chinatown.
