I'm concerned with NPOV issues, policy, and good journalism.

You'll find me sourcing articles, copyediting, and generally hanging around.

I work, full time, as a telecommunications system manager for a regional company located in Tennessee. Previously, I have worked for the non-profit Oprheum Theatre in Memphis, Tennessee, the non-profit Center for Southern Folklore, and one of the Gannett newspapers as well as Time Warner Communications. I've been very lucky in finding work and it's given me a broad education and perspective.
