The Gazette
I'm a features reporter at The Gazette, focused on telling human-centered stories about our community. I also edit Explore, The Gazette's Eastern Iowa-focused travel magazine. When I'm not at work, you can often find me trying good food at the many great restaurants in the Corridor, working in my garden or pampering my cats.
