He previously covered foreign bribery and corporate crime at Main Justice in Washington, D.C.
Originally from Texas, he reported on local politics, public safety and business in the Texas Hill Country for the Fredericksburg Standard Radio-Post. His writing and photography earned him first-place honors from the West Texas Press Association.
As a journalism graduate student at the University of Maryland, he covered the state’s congressional delegation, examined juvenile justice in Baltimore and helped report and write an award-winning package on salmonella in poultry that appeared in The Washington Post.
In his down time, Jeff enjoys playing and listening to music (and finding old records), reading fiction and exploring the city.
