I'm a reporter in New York City with an appetite for pizza and the absurd.

I grew up in California. After writing for an NBC affiliate in San Diego, I worked as a reporter at the Orange County Register, covering everything from crime to education to this one really smelly plant. Now, you'll find me on Staten Island, covering arts and entertainment for the Staten Island Advance and still thinking winter is an interesting concept.
