About Me: Email: [email protected] Phone: 714-721-1222 Birthday: Gemini I learned how to be a reporter with the Orange County Register before moving to The Press-Enterprise in Riverside. I’ve covered everything from cities to national forests to courts and prisons. I have some pretty colorful war stories from these beats. So if you see me out and about, tell me your stories and I’ll tell you about the time I met Governor Schwarzenegger … in prison … while I was wearing a stab-proof vest. Or I can tell you about the time I watched a Manson girl talk about anger management. I joke around. Much. Journalism, however, is possibly the only thing I take seriously. It’s a very humiliating job. Every day, people trust you with their voice on issues that are important to them, and you must try to live up to that responsibility. If I ever fail, you have to tell me about it so I can do it right. It is important. I’m unsure enough to tell you about some of the journalism awards I’ve won – the Associated Press Award for Investigative Reporting, the California Newspapers Publishers Association Awards for Investigative Reporting, and the Best Special, Children’s Health and Welfare Journalism Award Advocacy awards from the institute and the Society of Professional Journalists for the best corporate stories, best reporting, feature writing, and best environmental history. I think I was trying to collect awards to intimidate editors into chasing me after the stories I want to make. It doesn’t really work. When I work for Patch.com, my office is made up of the cities I cover, Starbucks, and my house, where my coworkers include a nice guy named D’Wayne and two pugs – Monkey and Maggie. If we ever talk on the phone, it might be Maggie you can hear soft snoring in the background. I’m sorry, she just can’t help it. Your convictions At Patch we promise to always report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise to adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also recognize that true impartiality is impossible because people have beliefs. In the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to express their beliefs as widely as they feel comfortable. Such disclosure is not a license for you to instill or dictate your beliefs in stories. In fact, the intent is the opposite: we hope that knowing your beliefs are on the record leads you to always make sure to write, report, and edit in a fair and balanced manner. And if you ever see evidence that we failed on this mission, please let us know.
