As an education and communities reporter and freelance correspondent for The Capital Times of Madison, Wis., I covered a broad array of subjects. My work for the weekly Isthmus newspaper was nominated for Best Investigative Story or Series in the Excellence in Wisconsin Journalism Competition of the Milwaukee Press Club.
- Want Cash?—Do payday loan companies provide a valuable service, or do they prey on the vulnerable?
- Living Off the Land, City Style—Lovers of local food find a plentiful wild harvest right downtown.
- Rhino Bones Dug Up by University of Wisconsin—After being buried for nearly two decades, a rhinocerous skeleton is almost ready to be put on display at the UW-Madison Zoological Museum.
- Graffiti Group Seeks Outdoor Canvas—Graffiti artists work with a neighborhood association to designate a spot where they can legally practice their art.
