News Philosophy: I believe that everyone should have an opportunity to have their story told.
Hometown: Carson, Ca
Education: I graduated with my BA from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University.

Hobbies & Interests: I love to stay active and work out at the gym. I also love to eat, so finding new restaurants on the weekend is one of my favorite activities.
