Salutations. After 3 years of hard work, I have finally made it to the Editor-in-Chief position, and I could not be more excited to do my absolute best to make it the absolutely best year possible with the help of my trusty partner-in-crime, Nat Shelton. I am a prolific writer, of all kinds with journalism being a very specific passion of mine. I am also an enjoyer of all things entertaining, from music to movies and everything in between or beyond. And as you can tell from my picture, I have excellent taste. I seek truth, justice, and improvement for us all through my writing, although since we're a school publication, I'm definitely starting small, I plan to make waves as big as possible this year. From politics to art, I talk about anything of interest to me (particularly those two things), so if you wanna see some interesting perspective on that, stick around. If not, take a look around to see what else might peak your interest.
