I’ve been covering city, state and national politics at the Signal, which includes California’s highly contested 25th Congressional District race.
Before that, I’ve won an Associated Collegiate Press award for reporting on student parents as a freshman, parachuted into and written about 300-person towns in North Dakota, pestered a senator for an interview in the Hart building cafeteria on Capitol Hill, camped out in rural Minnesota for hours reporting on a developing standoff on a farm, sat in on a 39-hour Missouri Senate filibuster, interviewed supporters at a Trump rally and live-tweeted vice presidential-hopeful Mike Pence’s withdrawal from the governor’s race for a major news outlet.

We were the first city in Los Angeles County to side with President Trump regarding suing the state over refusing to cooperate with ICE when it comes to illegal immigrants. This contentious city council meeting lasted over six hours until 1:30 a.m., with over 150 residents voicing their stance on the issue.
