I'm a Washington D.C. native and Indiana University alum who packed his candy-striped pants to move back down to the Gulf. As a former Tampa Bay Times intern, I enjoyed reporting in this vast and vibrant community — and certainly the hours spent relaxing on the beach. Or if I'm not writing, you'll find me watching baseball or trying a new restaurant. I love telling stories, and sharing the voices of those here in Tampa Bay. So send me your stories, I'm always listening. (I also love to cook but am not good at it, so recipes are always appreciated, too — especially if they have Old Bay).
