I’m a student journalist from Davis, California, and a senior at Scripps College, in Claremont, California, studying politics. Since my start in journalism six years ago, I’ve gotten some great hands-on experience at reputable newspapers, including The Miami Herald, The Sacramento Bee and The Philadelphia Inquirer and at my college newspaper, The Student Life, where I previously served as editor-in-chief.
At The Miami Herald, I was stationed on the investigations desk — looking into news tips, writing several long-term A1 investigative stories and helping other reporters as needed. In addition to the potential PPP fraud, I also reported on OSHA’s lack of action on COVID-19 and how 52 people died of the virus in one nursing home.
At The Sacramento Bee, I worked as the sole night cops reporter, covering crime, breaking news and enterprise stories. The newspaper hired a full-time reporter to replace me after my internship ended.
At The Philadelphia Inquirer, I tried a bit of everything thanks to a junkyard fire that ignited during one of the first weeks of my internship. I wrote multiple breaking news stories about it, reported on the junkyard’s court hearing after the city threatened to permanently shut it down and ended the summer with an A1 investigation into Philly’s general lack of resources to regulate all its many violation-riddled junkyards.
At The Student Life, I ran a weekly college newspaper that covers five undergraduate campuses and two graduate campuses with a staff of 110+ student journalists.
As I finish up my last year of college now, I’m working as a contributor to the CalMatters College Journalism Network’s data and investigations team and serving as an editor-at-large for The Student Life.
On this website, I’ve compiled my best work from my career thus far. Enjoy.
