I am a reporter with The News Tribune in Tacoma, Wash. I love to delve into the latest data release, find information important to readers and explain complicated subjects in a way that is easy to understand but does not dilute the information.
I am the business watchdog reporter and am interested in data, public records and investigations.
I am also the 2011 IRE Rural Computer Assisted Reporting fellow through the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues.
I currently live in Tacoma, Wash.
