About me

I started this blog during grad¬†school as a way to keep track of my own thoughts. Now I write and produce news for a local news station in Tampa, Florida, so I don’t have much time for thinking.

I completed my undergraduate degree in journalism and electronic media at the University of Tennessee in 2005. Then I spent 6-or-so years selling beer, playing around at a radio station or two, selling handbags, and hawking jewelry to shop-at-homers.

In 2011, I changed course (for the 100th time) and went back to graduate school. I finished in 2013 with what I jokingly refer to as a master’s in social media because “communication and information” sounds boring.

I used to say my employer pays me to play on the internet all day. Now I say they make me. That’s just they cynical news person in me. Most of my time is spent writing and reading. I fill the rest with complaining, drinking coffee and editing video. When I feel the itch, I type some thoughts and post them here. Thanks for stopping by!


These are a few of my favorite things.
