I am a successful Los Angeles trial lawyer and a research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. My primary research interests include about self-defense, news about local dangerous situations and homeland security. I am also interested in covering law enforcement and issues related to the Department of Justice and the U.S. Supreme Court.
Since 2013, I have reported online several breaking news stories, including the Boston Marathon bombings, the Cleveland kidnappings, and the San Bernardino and Brussels terrorist attacks. In 2015, I went to Paris to report on the updates of the terrorist killing rampage that started at the headquarters for the French newspaper, Charlie Hebdo. From Düsseldorf, Germany, I reported on the criminal investigation into the ill-fated Germanwings Flight 9525.
I started my career covering some national and international stories and several high profile events, including Hurricane Sandy, a train derailment in Washington Metro, and the historic East Coast blizzard in 2010. I also traveled to earthquake-ranged Haiti in January 2010 and returned to report on the rebuilding process in Port-au-Prince and nearby areas.
I am also committed to the fight against human sex trafficking. I have generated various reports on the widespread problem in the U.S. and other parts of the world. Local police are now presenting my exclusive investigative reports at conferences on human trafficking to help educate the community, students, and teachers on the crisis.
I grew up in Lexington, Kentucky and hold a B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in broadcast journalism. If you need something or you have a concern about anything related to the site or myself, you can contact me here.
