I was named editor for Trenton Patch in December 2010. I left a cozy job as a reporter at The News-Herald for the excitement and faster pace of daily online reporting. I truly believe the internet, coupled with various electronic devices, is the future of the news. I also believe hyper localism will play an enormous role in the continuing success of media organizations like Patch.  
I'm a Downriver boy who cares about his community and I fully intend to report the news as it comes, while maintaining at least two fingers on the pulse of the community. While at The News-Herald I won an award for reporting. I once covered Cruisin' Downriver from the back of an 87' Trac Clipper moped. I've also covered the death of a decorated and well respected police officer. My roots are here in southeastern Michigan and I intend to keep them here. I have two degrees from accredited universities. I have a journalism degree from Wayne State University and  a degree in literature from Eastern Michigan University. I've always wanted to be a reporter and an editor. I wrote for my high school newspaper called The Titan Tribune at Southgate Anderson High School. After high school I took the safe route and studied to be a teacher, but eventually the reporting bug began calling and I went back to school to pursue journalism. I love Trenton and the good people who live there. I'm asking all of you to help me make this site as good as it can be by keeping me as informed as possible. Feel free to contact me via email or leave a message right on this site.
