Some recent Ventura County Star work I’m particularly proud of

The last month has been particularly hectic and I’ve slacked a bit on sharing my favorite reporting for the Ventura County Star. Between the newspaper job, a handful of Metal Injection reviews and a few other writing projects I’m trying to develop in my free (???) time, it’s been busy busy. Still, the show must go on!

Here’s a few links to some of the larger stories I’ve recently published in the Ventura County Star:

Economic forecast notes continuing development issues in county: The recent 2017 Entrepreneur Economic Forecast conference featured several leading analysts who discussed a variety of local and national issues. On one hand, these kinds of conferences can be somewhat dull to cover since I report on so many of them and they tend to reach similar consensuses. Still, it’s always nice to see how experts believe the county is doing and these events provide an excellent summary on the economic state of the region. Also, one presenter said that millennials wanting to live in “fancy apartments and have cellphone service” was a factor in economic inequality. So…yeah. There’s that.

Dole to lay off Oxnard strawberry workforce, shut farm: We published this a bit after the Los Angeles Times’ excellent story on this issue. Though the same topic, I aimed to make my article more locally-focused and I think my piece had some nice insights, even for those that already read the Los Angeles Times’ take.

Simi Valley company’s EazyHold makes it simple to get a grip: Holy, it’s a positive story! I enjoyed spotlighting this local startup that aims to provide superior grip assistants for individuals with physical disabilities. The company’s co-owners were an absolute pleasure to work with and it’s heartwarming to be able to provide coverage for folks that seem to be trying to do some genuine good for the community.
