I'm the reporter covering all things Kansas University, and love the wide array of different stories I get to write on the beat.
I came to the News Center after working at The (Junction City) Daily Union and The Kansas City Star, and have enjoyed covering my alma mater.
I believe in the Chicago Cubs, and remain eternally convinced that, after all these years, is finally the year they win the World Series. No matter what you might say to the contrary. I also make occasional attempts (usually in vain) to hit a golf ball into a small round hole in as few strokes as possible.
I love newspapering, politics and the dash — my editors will probably tell you I overuse it.
You can also find me onTwitter, providing instant updates on news and what's going on in Lawrence and at KU.
