My reporting is grounded in the philosophy that news needs to be three things: socially conscious, community-minded, and intersectional. 
 

As a journalist, I strive to inform the community about essential issues through a lens that resonates with their daily lives. When readers can connect the news to their own life it increases their ability to engage with the community and live a more informed life.
 
Working as a sports reporter, I find the most interesting stories are the ones about the people sports affects, not just the games being played. Sports, at its core, is a microcosm of society and as such can be a gateway to discussing bigger topics. Therefore, something as simple as Sue Bird kissing Megan Rapinoe after winning in Tokyo can be contextualized and used to introduce new topics and stories into the news.

Every news story I work on is rooted in contextualizing the story with what is going on in society at large. With that in mind I look to my own experiences to remember that nothing happens in a vacuum. Additionally, nothing happens in only a single dimension. Issues facing the world today are complex and need to be reported on using multiple perspectives that go beyond the trope of “both sides of a story”.

The top Texas rules I live by: breakfast tacos over breakfast burritos, it’s always pronounced “pa-kawn”, if you don’t like the weather just wait ten minutes, and whatever you do-- DON'T mess with Texas.
