Assistant Editor

Tribune Publishing

Coral Springs, FL

Assistant editor by day, entertainment fiend by night. When I'm not working to get two tabloids out by the Monday deadline, I'm reading and writing about TV shows, films and anything else that interests me. So far, I've interviewed Russell Brand, Marlon Wayans, Cocoa Brown, Mark Ryan, Richard Horvitz, Shane Helms and others.
