I’m a summer 2021 reporting intern, covering beaches across the region along with anything else that comes up. I just graduated from Syracuse University, and I’m excited to once again trade an upstate New York winter for a Florida summer. I’ve covered growth and development in Lee and Collier counties, prisons in upstate New York, internal conduct proceedings at my alma mater and high school seniors whose year got cut short. I used to play volleyball, but that’s now evolved into a Spikeball passion — one that’s resulted in three (!) broken nets to date.
