About me

I’m an investigative and data reporter on the Bangor Daily News’ Maine Focus team.

I grew up in the suburb of Diamond Bar, California, before coming to Maine for college and staying in Portland. Professionally, I spent a year as the first local editor for Patch.com in my hometown but came back to Maine for a reporting job at a small, afternoon daily paper in Brunswick. Landed next at Mainebiz before three years covering business, Maine’s economy and energy for the Bangor Daily News. I joined the MaineFocus team in September 2017.
