I am a Los Angeles-based journalist with a nose for news and a hopeless fascination with arts and travel. I currently work full-time as a general assignment reporter for the The Acorn Newspapers, a weekly community paper based in Agoura Hills, Calif. But when I'm not digging into local news, I'm probably hammering out the details of my next freelance pitch, checking out the newest exhibition at the MOCA, planning a trip to another country, or searching for the next best place to eat in LA. In the last few years I've covered crime, breaking news, heath, environmental issues, business and politics, including the cleanup of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory in Simi Valley and the local race to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012. I've written stories about school districts struggling under millions of dollars of state budget cuts, governments dealing with the abolishment of redevelopment agencies, and the rise of autism in Ventura County. But I've also told the touching stories of terminally ill children in search of hope, musicians trying to get their big break, and the inspiring entrepreneurs who have realized the American dream. Besides being regularly published in the Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Simi Valley, Camarillo and Agoura/Calabasas editions of The Acorn, my work has also been seen in Filipinas magazine, The Huffington Post, and Furtherfield.org, a London-based arts network. I have a bachelor's degree in magazine journalism from California State University, Northridge, where I served as executive editor of Scene, the university’s official campus magazine. I also attended the University of Westminster in London, England, where I graduated with Distinction and earned a master of arts degree in visual culture.
