I’m a features reporter for The Gazette, which means I have the opportunity to get to know folks on a more personal level and demonstrate how daily news affects members of the community. In addition to covering restaurants and food news, I have a particular passion for human interest pieces and stories focusing on marginalized communities. Sometimes, taking a moment to listen to others and reflect on what they say — even those who might not think they have much of a story to tell — really puts things in perspective. When I’m not reporting, I like to travel, go bird watching, search for new items to add to my Peanuts collection and keep my cat from scaring away the cardinals on my balcony.
