Job duties:
I follow and report on Carson City government, business, arts and culture and other facets of the capital city. Community journalism is challenging but worth it. I love to write, and Carson is a vibrant city to cover as a journalist.

About me:
I have three children, including twin daughters, and am raising them in Gardnerville with my spouse of many years. In my life outside the office, I run a literary magazine and write books. The mountains also beckon.
