I joined the World Company as a part-time Web producer for in October 2007 and came on full time about six months after that. I now help maintain both and and report on miscellaneous happenings around Lawrence. I wear enough hats here that if I were to actually physically wear that many hats at the same time, I'd look ridiculous.

I graduated from KU's William Allen White School of Journalism in May 2007, where I did some web production for KUJH-TV, anchoring sports and reporting news for them as well. That gave me the opportunity to follow the Kansas men's basketball team across the country on its run to the Elite Eight in March 2007. I am (unfortunately) a Kansas City Chiefs and Royals fan.

When I'm not at work I try to stay active at the gym and on the basketball court. My favorite season is summer, where I'm outside as much as possible either at Red Dog's Dog Days or training for triathlons, which I started doing the summer of 2009. I've yet to drown, so I'd say it's going well. I enjoy poking around L-Town with friends too.
