Writing

I’m an accomplished journalist whose work has appeared in the Star Tribune, Pioneer Press and even nytimes.com, among other publications. I’ve been a reporter and editor based in Minnesota since I graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2006. My experience is wide-ranging: I’ve worked at daily and weekly newspapers, as well as daily hyper-local news websites and even a few magazines. I have received recognition and honors from SPJ, the Minnesota Newspaper Association and the Gannett Awards of Excellence, among others. (To read my official resume, with more detailed position descriptions, meet me on LinkedIn.)

Below is a sampling of my journalism and multimedia work. Questions or comments? Feel free to contact me.
