About me

Gender MALE
Location Imperial Beach, California
Introduction I am fortunate enough to be a senior staff writer and investigative reporter at the award-winning Southwestern College Sun newspaper, which is one of the most recognized college newspapers in the United States. I am also a non-traditional student at SWC in Chula Vista, California, writer, photographer, and unapologetic news junkie. I've earned a few kudos of my own from a few different places. Ask me if you want to know more.

Birds have tiny brains, an instinct to hunt, build, have numerous offspring, and vomit creatively - so clearly that means country music.
