My Role

I am a business reporter for the Chicago Tribune. I write features, in-depth stories and breaking news about the Chicago business community and economy.

My writing is informed by years of business beat reporting at the Tribune, covering everything from food and restaurants to aviation to accounting. Most recently, I wrote about the business of law and legal affairs and I still love writing about about the intersection of business and law.
My Biography

I've been a business reporter my entire career after graduating from college in 1993. I've spent most of my career at the Chicago Tribune, my hometown paper that I joined in 2000. I've seen the paper go through tremendous changes to adapt to a digital word.

Before joining the Tribune, I worked for the St. Petersburg Times in Florida, the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentuckyand the Poughkeepsie Journal in New York. I have journalism degrees from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
