WHAT I DO

I’m still figuring it out at the moment. I work at the Lafayette Journal & Courier as of October. So I’m still learning the ropes. I cover higher education at Purdue University and the West Lafayette community. While I’ve lived in a college town before, Purdue is a different beast.

WHAT I’VE DONE

I extensively wrote about a Walmart Neighborhood Market and the town of Newburgh. Long story short —the historic town did NOT want a big box company to come in and ruin the little town.

During my stint at the Evansville Courier & Press, I was also the “trash” expert for Warrick County’s curbside trash and recycling program. Who knew so many people cared about what happened with their trash.

Two things I will never forget.

WHAT I’M READING

I firmly believe it’s important to read if you want to write for a living. So my goal every year is to read 100 books. I’m slacking this year. But I’m trying to re-read Harry Potter because who doesn’t need some more of that in your life?
