Senior Digital Editor, tampabay.com

Whether you realize it or not, you interact with me throughout much of the day. I'm the voice behind the Times Sports Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as our Bucs Cannon Fodder and Lightning Strikes! Facebook groups. I prepare the sports email newsletters that appear in your inbox and news alerts that go to your phones. And on game days, I curate the live blogs that appear on tampabay.com. When I'm not promoting my colleagues' content, I'm creating my own, leaning on my 20-plus years of experience as a reporter and editor to find stories that are worth your attention or giving you a different perspective into ones we're already talking about. Though I'm a Pittsburgh native and Notre Dame graduate, I've spent the past 20 years in Tampa Bay and have set down roots here. I've started a family, and we, too, now share your passion for the Bucs, Rays, Lightning, Rowdies and more.
