Support your source for local news!
The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Infrastructure is what we build together to make life better (and the things that break). My role is to reveal the often-surprising and important systems that make life possible in and around L.A.

I'm probably the only reporter in L.A. who's built water systems -- that was one of my jobs during my Peace Corps service in Bolivia, where I became fluent in Spanish. I'm also a military veteran. But most of my career has been spent as a reporter working at newspapers, wire service, TV and public radio.

I'm a native Angeleno who's lived all over Southern California and covered most of the classic beats -- law enforcement, education, government, and immigration. When I'm not working, I like to read, sew, knit, swim, bike and run.

Got a question about the systems that make our region work? Please ask me below.
