I'm Cynthia Despres, a University of Florida senior hailing from Tampa, Florida.

In pursuing my degree, I've tried to become a Swiss Army knife of a journalism student by adding writing, editing, photography, research and design skills to my toolbox over the past few years. With this site, I hope to add web design experience to the mix.

Outside of class, I work as the editorial cartoonist for the Alligator, and most of my free time is consumed with watching football or making art. I also enjoy discovering out-of-the-way travel destinations in my home state, some of which I listed on this site for you.

Please take a look around! It's nothing fancy, but maybe you'll find something interesting.
