Hometown: Plantation, Fla.
Birthday: February 4
I'm a South Florida native who graduated from the University of Central Florida's journalism program. As a student, I interned as a reporter at the Sun Sentinel newspaper in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and the Oregonian newspaper in Portland, Ore., among other publications.
After graduating in 2007, I was hired full time at the Sun Sentinel as a community news reporter. I later moved on to the municipal and public safety beats, covering everything from bank robberies to the start of turtle nesting season.
When I'm not reporting, I can be found reading Harry Potter books (again), watching TV, or taking pictures on my smart phone. I also enjoy exploring the greater Northern Virginia area.
