Ugh. This guy again.

This will be my fourth semester on The Badger Herald’s Editorial Board, which makes me now the most seasoned member of a board of unseasoned journalism veterans. My friends and readers know me for my love of infrastructure investment, the way I mention I grew up between Beloit and Rockford, Ill., in all of my columns and for my undying love of Brazil.

Politically, I follow the ‘of no party or clique’ maxim that defines one of my favorite magazines, The Atlantic. You could say I’m liberal, but since I want a job in reporting after graduation it’s just easier for me to say that I’m an independent. I bring an expertise on local and state issues that comes from my stint as a city and state reporter during the four semesters I reported for the Herald’s news section.
