WHAT DO YOU DO AT THE MISSOURIAN? I'm an advanced reporter for the Fall 2014 semester, covering Public Safety and Health.

WHAT'S YOUR EXPERIENCE? I've worked for the Missourian as a reporter and assistant city editor. I've also worked as a contributing writer for Vox Magazine and as a freelancer for the L.A. Times. Outside of traditional journalism, I worked as a blogger for a number of soccer blogs, including one I've run myself.

WHAT KIND OF JOURNALISM KEEPS YOU GOING? So much. Crime reporting is huge to me, as is feature writing. I love international and conflict journalism, as it tells very real, very raw stories.

WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND? I was born and raised in the greatest city on Earth, Kansas City. I went to the all-boys high school in KC and wrote for the newspaper there. I'm the favorite and fifth of six kids. I'm at the University of Missouri seeking a degree in Print and Digital News within the journalism school.

WHAT'S YOUR LIFE OUTSIDE OF WORK? When I'm not bent over a computer in the newsroom, I like to sleep, write about soccer, watch soccer, read, sleep, work elsewhere, play video games and also sleep.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT COLUMBIA? I love that Columbia is so diverse. If you go downtown, you'll see sort of an indie scene. There are coffee shops with weird names right across the street from other coffee shops with weird names. If you go in any direction, you'll see neighborhoods that exist outside of the University, which can be hard to fathom when you exist in the Mizzou bubble. You can also find little 'rural' pockets in CoMo. Little pieces of everything, really.
