I'm a reporter and weekend editor at Oregon Public Broadcasting. I was previously a reporter at Jefferson Public Radio covering Southern Oregon and Northern California. Before that, I worked for local newspapers in rural Oregon and Idaho. My most recent reporting has focused on wildfires, natural disasters, and issues around poverty and homelessness.
