I am a freelance reporter based in Las Vegas.
Currently, I work on a variety of stories for The Sunday, Vegas INC and Desert Companion.
Formerly, I was a general assignment reporter for Las Vegas Review-Journal.
While I'm skilled at covering a range of topics, I'm most interested in writing about race relations and minority affairs, the criminal justice system, social justice issues and public policy.
My eight years in the industry have resulted in various awards including being named the 2011 Nevada Press Association Journalist of Merit.
I graduated from UNLV in 2008 with a degree in journalism and media studies, and I'm currently enrolled at Syracuse University doing an online Masters in communications and journalism. My calling as a journalist derives from my passion for social justice and human rights - I believe in watchdog journalism.
