I’m a cops and courts reporter for a newspaper in South Dakota. Before coming to the U.S. in 2015, I worked as a journalist in Beijing, Singapore and Manila.

I started out as a producer for a Cops-type TV program in the Philippines, but never thought I’d one day be covering the U.S. courts. (True, I also never expected to become a fashion reporter in China). I’m learning on the job, and hope that information on this site might help others.

If there are topics you’d like me to write about, send me your suggestions.

Since I’m 7,000 miles from home, this site is also a good way to tell my family and friends back home what I do while they’re sleeping.
