I’m proud to be a reporter for the Life & Culture team at my hometown paper. My favorite stories explore Florida history and provide context for local oddities, but I also report on breaking news and trends. I launched our community reporting project Florida Wonders and write stories that answer reader-submitted questions about the Tampa Bay area (Ask me anything you’ve been curious about, big or small, at firstname.lastname@example.org.) I graduated from UF in 2018 and was a journalism fellow in Germany through the RIAS Berlin exchange program. When I’m not poking around in the Times’ archives, I can be found embroidering something or eating baked goods.
