Here’s a running list of my best Dallas Morning News stories

I started at The Dallas Morning News in February 2015. I started on the cops beat, covering the Dallas Police Department, and then in February 2016 I was moved to the Dallas County beat. Since then, I’ve been covering county government, the jail, Parkland Memorial Hospital — North Texas’ largest public hospital — Dallas’ juvenile detention facilities and other interesting stuff that my editor or I have come across.

It’s been tough to find the time to keep this website updated. You can read all my published stories at my author page here. And below are some stories I’ve done in Dallas that I’m particularly proud of:
