I was born and lived in Buffalo, N.Y., for 23 years, before moving to Gainesville, Fla.
I am currently pursuing my master's degree in journalism with a concentration in new media at the University of Florida. I hope to graduate in May 2001. I received my bachelor of arts in journalism from Buffalo State College in May 1999. I also have worked in the professional field of journalism as well.
Most of my journalistic experience has come in the realm of sports. In the past, I have worked for the Buffalo News, Niagara Gazette, Niagara Frontier Sports and Leisure and the Gainesville Sun in a copy editor/reporter capacity. I also have freelanced for the West Palm Beach Post and the Bakersfield Californian.
