I'm a a reporter at The Roanoke Times, where I've covered state government and politics, higher education and the criminal justice system in Western Virginia. I've crammed into a diner with a Democratic presidential candidate visiting the reddest locality in Virginia, explored a mine being pitched as a site for a data center, and zig-zagged along a roadway giving hope to a once-booming coal town. I've written about the changes happening at Virginia Military Institute following allegations of racism. I shared the effects of gun violence on people and the damage of the opioid epidemic.
As a business reporter at the Columbus Dispatch, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and The Reading Eagle in Pennsylvania, I covered the natural gas industry, casinos and poverty.
