Who I AM...
I'm a well-traveled journalist based in Washington, D.C., where I cover Congress, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the D.C. Circuit and the Supreme Court for Courthouse News Service. I've also covered the Guantanamo military commissions cases and parole board hearings extensively. Deep dives and watchdog reporting are my passion, whether it’s scouring thousands of pages of SWAT Team records to finally spot a trend, or convincing a source to go on the record. My work spans a wide array of domestic and international issues for print and radio. I'm a strong proponent of freedom of information and have a proven track record of acquiring public records to enhance my reporting. I believe that journalism should hold public officials accountable and prompt meaningful changes that directly benefit the public. Originally from Bisbee, Arizona, I’ve earned a B.A. in Peace Studies from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and two master’s degrees in journalism and Middle Eastern and North African studies from the University of Arizona.
