1. I was born in Pomona, CA and moved to La Crescenta in 6th grade, where I attended . The following year I attempted to open my jammed  locker.

2. I earned my Bachelor's of Arts in Journalism from Loyola University Chicago and studied under many talented, professional journos. In college I began reporting on community news and crime on Chicago's North Side at the Loyola Phoenix.

3. When I'm not punching away on a keyboard, you can catch me at the with my family, or sipping margaritas at with my pals.
