As a general assignment reporter, I’ve been assigned, generally, to learn more about the community that raised me. Aside from four years at Duke University, where I double-majored in English and basketball yelling, I’ve lived all my life in Florida. As a reporter, I’m interested in how the decisions of people in power affect everyday Floridians, and in building community around storytelling. I joined the Times in September 2017, and I spent my first year on the politics team covering the 2018 governor’s race. When I’m not in the office, I like to travel, sing show tunes and dream about playing for the Boston Red Sox.
