Hello everybody.
I'm a lifelong South Bay resident who attended North Torrance, El Camino College, USC and Long Beach State before embarking on a career in journalism. I've covered the Lakers, Rams, UCLA, USC and all the area's high schools and JCs during my career working for community newspapers. Now I'm excited to contribute to patch.com, striving to bring the kind of local coverage that has not existed for decades, if ever. This is an internet-age breakthrough, one I believe can bring a new era in coverage for the area's high schools and JCs, not to mention local community news and entertainment. I'm married to a dog groomer, the lovely Angell, with two grown boys. I have lived in South Torrance the past 16 years, but feel connected to all the beach communities I've loved my entire life. I look forward to meeting many of you as I venture out into the area's high schools and JCs with a new sense of community that I hope will grow stronger in the coming years.
