In 2016, I published my first piece of local journalism with the North Coaster. The following year, I partnered with the North Bay Bohemian and Pacific Sun to report on issues affecting Marin, Sonoma, and Napa County residents. In 2019 I hope to bring my work to more publications.
“The rent kept A-Rollin’” (Dec. 2018)
In October I attended a rail conference in Washington, D.C. where I learned much about how the SMART train might affect the already tight — and expensive — North Bay real estate market.
“Miso challenge” (Nov. 2018)
Sebastopol’s Sushi Kosho serves up some pretty sushi, but how’s the taste? I visited the restaurant on a quiet weekday afternoon to see if Chef Jake Rand’s creations were worthy of Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market.
“So it goes (again)” (Nov. 2018)
The Camp Fire has killed dozens, displaced thousands, and put the whole North Bay on edge. In this week before Thanksgiving, let’s do what we can to help those in need.
“Life After Trauma” (Oct. 2018)
One year after the Tubbs Fire, Sonoma and Napa County residents are still recovering. Instead of grief, I propose that we turn October 9th into a day to be thankful for what we have.
“From Russia With Beer” (Sept. 2018)
Russian River Brewing Company (RRBC) brews some of the best beer in the world. As a history nerd and beer lover, I wondered how the beer in RRBC’s namesake country compared. Over seven days in the Russian capital, I sipped seven unique beers.
“Train I Ride” (Aug. 2017)
All aboard! The SMART train was just a few days away from its grand opening, and I got a front row seat to Marin and Sonoma County residents’ first impressions of this transportation revolution.
“A man died here” (may 2017)
In my first article for the Bohemian, I report on how public places reacted to a string of heroin deaths that struck Santa Rosa in spring 2017.
