Life is about learning, exploring and creating. My job with MPR News allows me to indulge my curiosity every day!
I cover general news in a wide swath of western Minnesota and eastern North Dakota, with a focus on the environment, agriculture, Indian Country and the growing regional drone industry. From Morris to Warroad, I meet interesting people who always teach me something.
My job is to share what I learn with MPR News consumers, helping them be more informed, and maybe on occasion, entertained as well.
