Story
Tagline
I have an insatiable urge to write.
Introduction
I'm a reporter for the Capital Times, in Wisconsin's beautiful capital city. I am an Iowan-Wisconsinite hybrid, and a lover of music, politics, cheese and bacon. And writing, of course.

I was the 2010-2011 editor in chief of the Iowa State Daily, and I have interned with CNN's Money Unit, Isthmus, the Center for Media and Democracy and the Des Moines Register. I recently worked as a reporter for the Oshkosh Northwestern in Oshkosh, Wis.

I enjoy playing the piano and banjo, traveling, reading and writing. I also enjoy ironing and cooking, but by no means does that make me domestic.
