Deputy Editor, Life & Culture

I’ve been at the Times since 2000, arriving straight out of Kent State University in Ohio. I’ve held a gaggle of titles in the newsroom, but dearly loved being the editor of tbt* when it was a daily paper. I grew up in Pittsburgh but married a Florida native. I live in St. Pete and have a young son.
