Most Memorable Stories: Investigation into a speed trap
 
News Philosophy: Have the community’s best interest in mind, and at heart. Use journalism as a platform to right the wrongs and preserve democracy. Finally, while I am a journalist, I am a human being first.
 
Favorite Sports Teams: I think I’m obligated to say the Dallas Cowboys, but I’m sure Cleveland could change my mind with time.
 
Favorite Music: I’m a sucker for good drumming. Naturally, I’m drawn to alternative, rock and pop punk.
 
Favorite Movie: Anything scary.
 
Favorite Program: I could watch endless episodes of "Shark Tank" and "Friends" without ever getting bored.
 
Favorite Food: Coming from a foodie who competes in fitness competitions, I pride myself in finding the best local spots. I’m a sucker for a good burger with sweet potato fries, craft donuts and sushi.
 
Hobbies & Interests: Outside from work, I compete in both bodybuilding and power-lifting.
 
You're most likely to see me around town at: You can find me at the gym, teaching cycling classes or in a coffee shop diving into a new book.
 
Hidden Talent: I’m a drummer.
 
Something most people don't know about me: I can speak Mandarin.
 
What I like best about Northeast Ohio: I love the close-knit feel in such a big city. Everywhere you go, even at the checkout line at the grocery store, people ask how your day is going.
 
On the weekends I love to: On the weekends, I love turning my alarm off, finding hole-in-the-wall brunch spots and seeing live music.
