Accuracy and comprehension are paramount to journalism, two goals I strive for while copy editing for the Tampa Bay Times and tbt*. So, too, is coverage of communities that traditionally have been neglected worldwide. My passion is to bring such stories to the forefront with tbt*’s Coast is Queer section. Have a tip or want to write about the large and varied LGBTQ community in Tampa Bay? Contact me at email@example.com.
Like many others in Florida, I grew in the cornfields of Indiana — and still love ranch and the fall. I earned my bachelor’s degree at Ball State University where I studied journalism and French. Before the Times, I worked for Bleacher Report and the Muncie Star Press.
