I'm a 26-year-old college student, currently attending Arizona State University where I am majoring in Choral Music Education. I started writing for Bright Side of the Sun (officially) in February 2010. I was the sports editor for ASU's newspaper The State Press, where I have previously held positions as the A&E editor and an A&E reporter.

In my short journalistic career, I've been afforded the opportunities to interview countless people I never thought I'd ever talk to, including Amare Stoudemire, Steve Nash (and most of the rest of the Suns, for that matter), John Legend, William Fitzsimmons, Donald Glover (of Childish Gambino and Community fame) and others. I may not have been doing this for a long time, but I am constantly amazed at the opportunities that have been laid out before me. It's really a very humbling experience that I am incredibly grateful for.

Any questions? Feel free to shoot me an email or catch me on Twitter. (@trpaxton)
