I cover higher education for the Tampa Bay Times.
After nurturing an endearingly subpar high school lit mag in South Jersey, I got into journalism at UNC's newspaper, The Daily Tar Heel. Then came a handful of internships at the Charlotte Observer and the Boston Globe. I joined the Times in 2014 and live in St. Pete.
I spend all of my money on books and the absurdly expensive endeavor of keeping my dog alive. Each month or so, I send out a tinyletter with lots of good things to read and just a bit of purple prose. You can sign up here.
