My Bio

I have worked as a freelance producer for The Early Show, The CBS Evening News, CBS Sunday Morning, Good Morning America, ABC World News Tonight, NBC Nightly News, The Today Show, The Military Channel, Discovery ID, Inside Edition, E! News, Extra and Warner Bros.

I was a contributing writer at San Diego Magazine, where I received national recognition for a series of articles on high-profile murder investigations. A story about the Rick Post case earned me an interview on an Investigation Discovery program, a one-hour special entitled "Spies, Lies & Alibis." For a two-part series on the David Westerfield case, I won a Silver Award for reporting from the City and Regional Magazine Association. Based on an article I wrote about the Kristin Rossum murder case, I worked as a consultant for 48 Hours and appeared in a one-hour Court TV program: "Pretty Poison." The segment is being rebroadcast by HLN. My Rossum article also got the attention of the tabloids. When I broke the swinger angle on the Westerfield case, I freelanced for the Big Three--Globe, Star and National Enquirer. I love those guys, especially the way they talk. Everybody seems to have a British or Australian accent.

I also worked as an investigative reporter for KFMB-TV, News 8 in San Diego. I uncovered improper disposal of confidential financial information, leading to a new state law protecting consumers. I also exposed a multi-million-dollar case of dental fraud and referred the results of my investigation to the state Attorney General’s Office, resulting in felony convictions against nine defendants. I also did a little radio reporting while at News 8.

My television career began in Fresno at KFSN-TV, ABC30, where I worked as a morning show co-anchor.

I started my journalism career at The Fresno Bee, where I worked as a general assignment reporter. I also became a guest columnist for the newspaper.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Stanford University and a Master of Arts in Literature and Writing Studies from California State University, San Marcos.

I teach a college journalism course. Check out my reviews. If those weren't enough, here are a few others.
