Thanks for reading my work. So you know a little about me, I’ve spent most of my career in the newspaper and magazine arenas. I do a lot of writing now for our radio’s news site and its sister station sites, but I also co-host a community issues broadcast. When I’m not behind a keyboard or microphone I like to hit the trails and visit the region’s rivers, lakes and reservoirs. In the office I share with a news buddy is a 6-foot tall cardboard cutout of Darth Vader. Multiple Yoda figures share the office too, and I think there might even be some small stormtroopers and R2-D2 figures around here somewhere.
