Managing Editor

I write mostly about the Bobcats. I've been a Rufus on Fire member since way back and managing editor since February of 2011. In my past life, I wrote for short stints with Bobcats Baseline and I was once a Charlotte Bobcats interactive media intern. Now I am a journalism school student at UNC-Chapel Hill and cover mostly stories about large burritos and SlamBall. Outside of basketball, I mainly make lots of jokes and listen to a lot of music. Inside of a basketball, it's too dark to do any of those things. (c) Groucho Marx
