I'm the courthouse reporter at the York (Pa.) Daily Record/Sunday News, where I've worked since graduating summa cum laude from Syracuse University with a bachelor's degree in broadcast and digital journalism in December 2014.
I've investigated topics such as law enforcement tactics in undercover prostitution stings, which led to at least three police departments in York County changing their policies.
I exposed how a former Boy Scouts leader testified before a grand jury that he sexually abused 16-18 people — and then went to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to shield his identity.
And I took an in-depth look at United Fiber & Data, a telecommunications startup in York tied to members of the multi-platinum-selling rock band Live that boasted it would create more than 300 jobs and generate in excess of $2 billion in state tax revenue in 30 years in Pennsylvania — but has not yet lived up to its own hype.
My work for investigative, enterprise and beat reporting has been recognized in the Professional Keystone Media Awards as well as the Pennsylvania Bar Association Media Awards. I was a finalist in the 2020 Livingston Awards for Excellence in Local Reporting.
Prior to moving to York, Pennsylvania, I was an intern on the city desk of The Philadelphia Daily News in summer 2014. I also completed an internship in summer 2013 at CBS-3 (KYW-TV) in Philadelphia.
While in college, I worked as a reporter and assistant copy editor for The Daily Orange, the independent student newspaper of SU.
