Being press at cool events in Iowa, like the Jefferson Jackson dinner, lead me to sit next to reporters from the Boston Globe. Casual.

One time in high school, I stumbled upon a hostage situation in my neighborhood and sat next to the news trucks in my car. Police lined the street as a friend and I live tweeted the event. Later posting a story that probably three people read, I realized how much I loved chasing this adrenaline rush of being the first to know information.

I enjoy knowing things, especially before everyone else. I admire reporting. I thrive off of asking questions, sometimes tough ones.

From those questions came these stories; some I am most proud of. I also have had some cool experiences like interviewing the mayor of Des Moines, being within arms reach of Joe Biden, seeing presidential candidates speak 20 feet in front of me and collecting a slew of press passes. From those passes, developed these stories.

So please enjoy these stories that I worked hard to create.
