About Neil

Hi! My name is Neil Hughes. Thanks for taking the time to visit my site. This is my chance to tell you a little bit about me and what I do.

I'm a journalism student at the University of Florida. I've been involved in journalism for a long time, way back in into high school in the old dotcom bubble days. That's right, even fourteen year old kids made money for doing basically nothing back then. But I chose to be a journalist because my two favorite things to do in this world are to write and to anger people. It turns out, this is the field for me.

I work at the Independent Florida Alligator. I'm general assignment, so I write all kinds of different things. It gives me a good variety, plus I get to learn a lot about the campus that I wouldn't otherwise know. It's a great way to see and learn about groups and organizations you aren't familiar with.

But that's not all! I'm also a big computer nerd. I own a bunch of unnecessary gadgets and things because I love technology. And I love hockey, but there is no NHL this year, which makes me sad.

If you want to learn more about me or what I like to talk about, you can check out my blog, over at Please note, I use explicit language there, so keep the kiddies away.
