The Tampa Bay Times routinely recruits some of the nation’s most talented student journalists to join their ranks as reporters, photographers and web and audience editors. I copy edit those people. In all seriousness, I’m excited to work with the Times and help bring great local journalism to a new-to-me community. I'm coming to the Times from Northwestern University, and I grew up outside Chicago. You can find me explaining the intricate feuds of Evanston politics to anyone who will listen and trying to come up with a story pitch that gets me on Iron Gwazi before anyone else.
