I am a dedicated, hard-working journalist with more than two decades of experience in a wide variety of areas. My work has included 12 years of business reporting, during which I covered top companies, including Harley-Davidson and MillerCoors. A highlight included spending nearly two weeks in China covering a major governmental trade mission and reporting on Wisconsin companies doing business in China. My current freelance work includes several major pieces for Milwaukee Magazine, a regional news magazine. I regularly freelance for the Associated Press sports bureau in Milwaukee, covering pro and college sports. I serve as a freelance reporter for the Better Government Association, a Chicago watchdog journalism group.
