INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING

ENTERPRISE REPORTING

  • Oak Knoll Firefight: ‘Get out! Get out!‘: An account of the worst residential fire in at least a century in Ashland, Ore., and how four quick-thinking city employees saved all the residents on a block. This story was the first in a three-part series that won the 2011 Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association’s first-place award for Best Enterprise Reporting.

HEALTH REPORTING

  • I received a 2014 Mental Health Fellowship through the Maynard Institute and wrote about how indigenous farmworkers have little access to mental health services. I appeared on the Southern California public radio show Which Way L.A. with Warren Olney on KCRW to talk about the story.

ENVIRONMENT REPORTING

  • Fracking Threatens Condor Sanctuary: Expanding fracking in a California condor sanctuary could kill an endangered species we’ve worked hard–and spent millions–to save.
  • Dirty Water? Offshore Fracking Reports Alarm Activists: Oil platforms have long been a familiar presence off Southern California’s coast, but until recently, federal and state officials didn’t know the offshore rigs were doing more than traditional drilling. They didn’t know they were fracking.

NEWSPAPER FEATURES

  • Between the law and a homeless place: A feature on homeless residents in Ashland, Ore. who were fighting the city for a legal place to sleep. This story won the 2011 Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association’s first-place award for Best Lifestyle Coverage. It also ran with this sidebar, a day-in-the-life story on homelessness.

EDUCATION

PERSONAL-NARRATIVE FEATURE

  • Ten years after: Reflections on my high school reunion and life in general.

Thank you to all of the editors, fellow reporters and — most importantly — sources who have helped with these articles. I’ve learned from every story.
