Three First-Place Trophies at OC Press Club Awards!


A few weeks ago during a ceremony at the Newport Beach Marriott, my OC Weekly colleagues and I won 25 Orange County Press Club Awards, including 14 First-Place nods.

I was fortunate to win three First-Place trophies.

It would not have happened without the support of Gustavo Arellano, Nick Schou, Cynthia Rebolledo, Lisa Black, the entire OC Weekly crew, my readers, and last but not least, my lovely dining companion and partner in life (a.k.a. Cookiemonster). She not only encouraged me to go for this dream job more than a decade ago, but also told me to enter in more than just one category this year.
