  • I cover government and politics here at the Herald and believe it or not, I really love it! I come to the paper by way of working in sports radio for 3 years and at the same time doing various jobs on Utah's Capitol Hill. I graduated from the University of Utah (Go UTES!!) in 2008 and grew up in Holladay, Utah.
