I cover St. Petersburg and the Pinellas County legal beat. When I'm not roaming city hall or sitting in court, I’m sleeping late or watching cooking videos on YouTube. I’m proudly from New Jersey, with a tattoo to prove it, and I graduated from Northwestern University before coming to the Times in 2014. I've had the honor of documenting the most magical and tragic moments in Floridians' lives, including a rocket launch, an execution and three hurricanes. Off work, I like things that go — I have a pilot’s license and own a motorcycle — and things that are slow, like savoring morning coffee and a local brew at night. I’m in journalism because I believe the truth can touch hearts and change the world.
