Since then, I have filed for numerous publications, including the Associated Press, Yahoo Sports!, Bleacher Report, San Francisco Chronicle, Sacramento Bee and TeamUSA.org.

Below you will find writing samples from my journalism career. My first love was sports journalism, but I have covered nearly every beat: crime/cops, public health, government, business, features, travel and weather.

An investigation into the effectiveness of DUI Checkpoints conducted by local police.

Trained Multimedia Journalist

I studied multimedia journalism at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, where I learned to produce video and audio.
