Brittany Volk

Times Staff

I'm the Features Design Director and a snack provider for the Tampa Bay Times. I move words and pictures around on pages, working alongside writers, editors, photographers and artists. I'm also an art director, commissioning illustrations for Times stories from talented artists all over the globe. As someone who can barely draw a stick figure, this part of my job is the most fun. To share my troubling TV habit, I also write about all things pop culture. I co-host the Times' podcast Life Of The Party. I grew up in Iowa City, Iowa, forever a Midwesterner at heart who misses sweaters, not the cold. I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2009. It's a millennial miracle to have my dream job.
