About Me

I started my first journalism job at 17 and immediately fell in love with telling stories. After more than a decade of reporting and managing at newspapers, I began a new chapter in my career when I launched Mount Pleasant Patch, a community news site, in the South Carolina Lowcountry.

Prior to joining the Patch.com team, I was a reporter at the Chattanooga Times Free Press where I covered crime, politics and education. I’ve also reported for the Savannah Morning News and a handful of community newspapers in southeast Georgia.

My writing has won regional and state awards and my eye for graphic design has been noted in national journalism design contests. I’m skilled in photography, video editing and web design. Download a collection of my best work.
