My brief run in with fame - getting to interview Hugh Jackman when he came to re-open the Met Theater here in Iowa Falls. Still one of the coolest experiences I've ever had and something I will never forget.

With no sports to cover in recent months and empty pages, the sports staff has been racking our brains with ideas for content. I saw on social media other writers posting their sports inspirations. We thought it would be cool to ask our area coaches to answer a few questions about their sports inspirations. And then I thought “why not fill it out myself?”

I am currently a reporter for the Times Citizen where I cover mostly sports – but through all of this I have done a lot more news – and features. I have been roaming the sidelines for the TC for nearly 10 years, it will be 10 in August.


Hastings didn't get a swim team until my junior year of high school - but it was an experience I will never forget. Though I wasn't the fastest, or one of the best, I always felt like a part of the team - thanks to Coach Schoessel. 


This is probably the most accurate representation of me... spending my evenings standing on the sidelines, taking photos and notes. I wouldn't change a thing, I love what I do!
