I’m a reporter with 5 years of experience covering business news in California. I currently work at The San Diego Union-Tribune, covering startups and technology. My work regularly appears in the Los Angeles Times, the Union-Tribune’s sister publication. I’ve been covering early-stage entrepreneurship in San Diego since 2014 when I joined the San Diego Business Journal on the tech and biotech beat. There, I created the Startup Page business column that won an award for Best Recurring Feature in a national contest by The Alliance of Area Business Publishers. I also have a history covering the biopharma industry, most recently writing for Endpoints News. Other topics I’ve covered include finance, retail, food and beverage.
