Investigative Reporter

I am a reporter and developer working under the investigations team. I report stories, analyze data, develop news applications, design digital presentations, and occasionally take photographs. I focus on watchdog reporting. I've reported on a power plant accident that burned five to death, the starkly different circumstances in which black and white Floridians are shot by police, the decades-old flooding problems in Jacksonville and more. Feel free to reach out if you have a story I should look into.
