I'm currently a Senior majoring in Broadcast Journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, scheduled to graduate in May of 2013. I have survived in the Arizona heat for the past four years after growing up in the wonderful city of Seattle, Washington (yes, it rains there). I enjoy sports, particularly baseball, and you can currently find me musing about the Miami Marlins here at Fish Stripes, and previously at Marlins Daily. Aside from writing, I do stand-up comedy.
