I grew up in a suburb north of Detroit. Despite my parents’ best efforts, I missed a few childhood lessons, like “don’t talk to strangers” and “if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all.” I headed to Michigan State University to be a journalist.
I wasn’t sure what that meant, but it turned out to be exactly what I wanted to do. I got to MSU and started writing for The Big Green, a publication I would eventually become the Editor in Chief of.
I produced audio for Spartanedge and Impact 89 FM, and wrote for Capital News Service. I blogged for The Detroit News during the 2008 election and ended up interning at a small capitol newsletter, Michigan Information & Research Service, until they hired me as a freelance writer and later a full-time correspondent.
In 2014 I took a job with statewide media company MLive. I cover business and capitol issues. My reporting appears online and in eight print publications across the state.
Aside from being a reporter, I’m a human who enjoys biking, beer and cats.
