The Southern California economy is strong, so why are so many people living paycheck to paycheck? I tell the stories of these Angelenos, their struggles and the many creative ways they make a living. I share information on strategies that can put people on the path to greater prosperity.

Before coming to KPCC/LAist, I covered science and technology at KPBS in San Diego. My stories have aired nationally on NPR's Morning Edition, PBS NewsHour and Marketplace.
