About me: Email: [email protected] Phone: 714-721-1222 Birthday: Gemini I learned to be a reporter at the Orange County Register before I moved to The Press-Enterprise in Riverside. I’ve covered everything from cities to the national forest, to courts and prisons. I have quite colorful war stories based on these rhythms. So if you see me in town, tell me your stories, and I’ll tell you about the time I met Governor Schwarzenegger… in prison… while wearing a bulletproof vest. Or I can tell you about the time I watched a girl from Manson give a talk on anger management. I’m kidding. A lot. However, journalism is maybe the only thing I take seriously. It is a very humiliating job. Every day, people give you their voice on things that matter to them, and you should try to live up to your responsibilities. If I ever fail, I need you to tell me about it, so I can get it right. It is important. I’m not sure enough to tell you about some of the journalism awards I’ve won: the Associated Press Award for Investigative Journalism, the California Newspapers Publishers Association Awards for Investigative Journalism, and the best special section, the Price Child Health and Welfare Journalism Prize of the Children’s Advocacy Prize of the Institute as well as the Society of Professional Journalists for the best business stories, the best reporting, the writing of feature films and the better environmental story. I think I tried to collect rewards in an attempt to intimidate editors into letting me chase the kinds of stories I want to make. It doesn’t really work. Working for Patch.com, my office consists of the towns I cover, Starbucks, and my home where my coworkers include a charming gentleman named D’Wayne and two pugs – Monkey and Maggie. If we’re ever talking on the phone, it’s Maggie you might hear lightly snoring in the background. Sorry, she can’t help it. Your Beliefs At Patch, we promise to always report the facts as objectively as possible and to adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also recognize that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. So, in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to disclose their beliefs to the extent that they feel comfortable. This disclosure does not allow you to inject your beliefs into stories or dictate coverage based on them. In fact, the intention is the opposite: we hope that knowing that your beliefs are on file will lead you to always be careful to write, report and edit in a fair and balanced manner. And if you ever see any evidence that we failed on this mission, let us know.
