I’m the Public Safety Reporter for The Gazette. I’ve always enjoyed writing and decided to be a newspaper reporter after my sophomore English teacher encouraged me to join my high school newspaper. I love news-style writing because it’s concise and straight forward. This job is great because I spend my days talking to people and sharing important and interesting stories. When I’m not at work I can usually be found playing card games or watching movies with my family.
