Why I'm A Journalist: This sounds cliché, but I work to expose public corruption and give voice to those who need it. I also value quality storytelling – good photography, good writing and good moments.
My favorite news story: A retired doctor in Atlantic, Iowa who's offered free medical care for the last 10+ years. He uses a shoebox to collect donations from people who can afford to give. He runs his entire business off of donations.
