Who am I? Why am I here? What is the meaning of life?

I committed myself to writing in kindergarten, when my teacher asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. I said a writer and a cheerleader mouse, like at Showbiz Pizza. So here I am, until a cheerleader mouse gig opens up.


I have covered nearly every beat in my 11 years at dailies. My editors once created a beat for me called the “GA/weird,” which I’m still not sure was about me, my stories or the city of Boulder. I currently perch in features, as a fashion/humor columnist (for about six years), fitness columnist and writer-slash-firefighter. That means I’m the acting features editor until we hire someone, and I work hard to fill in other holes around the newsroom. Also, if something were to literally catch on fire, I suppose I would stop, drop and roll on it.
