Story
Introduction
I cover politics and policy for KUT News and the Texas Tribune. I'm currently on the campaign trail following Texas Governor Rick Perry as he runs for the GOP Presidential nomination.
Before moving to Texas, I worked in public radio in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa, Ala., and at several television stations in Alabama and Tennessee. 
I was born in New York City and raised in Chattanooga, Tenn.
I graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in broadcast journalism. (ROLL TIDE!)
