Thank you for visiting my personal website.
An editor-proclaimed "multimedia ninja," I am a recent graduate of Elon University with a double major in Journalism and Media Analytics and a minor in Political Science. I am now working as a political reporter for The Sacramento Bee.
Through my work with professional media outlets, I have extensive reporting experience. I enjoy covering hard news and telling stories through multimedia platforms.
I most recently served as an investigative fellow for News21, a political reporting intern for The Raleigh News & Observer and the enterprise manager for Elon News Network. I have had additional bylines in The Washington Post, Charlotte Observer and Burlington Times-News.
I've covered a wide range of events from Internet governance panels to major presidential campaign rallies and produced day-of breaking stories about erroneous tax letters as well as months-long enterprise stories about U.S. water quality. I've landed interviews with influential people ranging from then-candidate Donald Trump to "Sex and the City" star Kristin Davis. In the words of a former executive editor, "Bryan is dedicated to the craft of reporting and willing to cover stories anytime and anywhere."
I am an avid writer, fierce board game competitor, movie lover, sports enthusiast and (usually painfully) an Oakland Athletics and San Jose Sharks fan.
What Others Have to Say...
"Bryan brought drive, initiative, professionalism and multimedia know-how to his work at the N&O. He was ready for any kind of assignment and he didn't wait for one to come his way; he pitched story ideas and paid attention to what was coming up. On assignment, he didn't need to be told to tweet, take pictures, shoot video, Periscope, record audio for our podcast - the list goes on. And he always found out what he could do to improve his story, which is how he ended up interviewing Donald Trump one-on-one.
-Jordan Schrader, Raleigh News & Observer, Capitol Editor
