Digging hard on a story is what I live for. As an investigative reporter, I work to hold the powerful accountable and tell the stories of our community’s most vulnerable citizens.
I am a firm believer in the power of journalism and a vocal supporter of the First Amendment. I also feel the media is a crucial component to a free and open society and am guided by the principal every day.
Before coming to KTVU, I worked as a reporter at The San Francisco Chronicle where I covered our region and state’s biggest stories. I developed a deep knowledge of the criminal legal system and closely followed the state and federal courts.
I have also covered the sweeping criminal justice reforms that have taken hold around the Bay Area and country in wake of many controversial police killings.
I’m from Eugene, Oregon where I also went to college at the University of Oregon. I studied journalism and fell in love with the craft. I worked for our school’s newspaper before moving to Portland where I began my writing career.
I later started working for KGW-TV and set about learning every aspect of the TV news business.
When I take a break from my work, I enjoy going on hikes, playing sports, listening to records and taking pictures. I am the father of two energetic toddlers and frequently build LEGOs, race Hot Wheels and patiently sit down for tea parties.
