Some were born to draft financial proposals. Others were destined for a career in medicine. I was built to be a storyteller.
At 17, I was hired at the San Diego Union-Tribune. And after graduating from the Annenberg School for Journalism at 22, I became the youngest staff member to join KTLA 5 News in Los Angeles — my professional home of more than three years.
My multimedia work spans local and national news outlets, including The New York Times and The Guardian. I also won an OJA award as lead editor and producer for a 360 documentary series with USA TODAY and The Desert Sun.
