Work has previously appeared: Acorn Newspapers, Beyond the Acorn magazine, Huffington Post, Filipinas Magazine

I am a Los Angeles-based journalist with a nose for news and a hopeless fascination with arts and travel. I am the former editor of the Simi Valley edition of the Acorn Newspapers, a family of five community weeklies based in Agoura Hills, Calif.

Throughout my roughly 10-year career I've covered crime, breaking news, health, environmental issues, business and politics, including the cleanup of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory in Simi Valley, Calif. 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.

I have a bachelor's degree in magazine journalism from California State University, Northridge and a master's degree in visual culture from the University of Westminster in London, England.
