Born and raised in Ottumwa, Iowa, I’m a storyteller and a communicator. First and foremost, I’m an Iowan, with a deep respect and passion for the state’s people, music, landscape, and culture.

I’m always looking for opportunities where my love for music, storytelling and culture can converge. I’m a strong believer that, in the ever-changing media landscape, my peers and I have the opportunity to restructure and map out the future of journalism and communications.

As a reporter at the Des Moines Register since October 2011, I’ve had the opportunity to cover a wide array of breaking news stories. In early January, 2013, I was the Register’s reporter on the ground in Mason City when a medical helicopter crash killed three people onboard. In the fall and winter of 2012, I extensively covered Occupy Des Moines’ protests around the Iowa Caucuses.

Please take a look around, enjoy my blog, and always feel free to get in contact with me.
