Former CBS correspondent in london. Al Jazeera english reporter for four years in Washington, D.C. I was born in Austin, TX, and have lived all over the globe including: Colombia, Japan and France. I have covered breaking news for the past decade, from the war on drugs to the haiti earthquake, to fukushima disaster, to the arab spring. When the Chilean mine collapse occurred, I was the only reporter who managed to send a small video camera to the miners and gain exclusive footage before their rescue.
