I'm a 2010 graduate of the University of North Florida with a degree in journalism. So, yes, away from Bleacher Report, I am a full-time journalist for a newspaper in Palm Coast, Fla. I have won four awards (#humblebrag), but who's counting? (Probably my mother.)
Most of my experience over the last four years at the newspaper has been as the sports editor covering all sports for five high schools in two counties. I have also covered local government and crime.
Although I still write for print, the Internet is where I live. I check Twitter and my email before I drink my first cup of tea in the morning.
With UNF not having the best of sports during my time there, I naturally became a Florida Gators fan. Oddly enough, two close friends attended school in Gainesville just in time for the golden years (two football titles, back-to-back hoops titles).
My family had season tickets to the Jacksonville Jaguars since their first season. Unfortunately, we gave them up after about 10 years because I played too much soccer.
Follow me on Twitter @aobrien7. Interacting with readers is one of my favorite parts of my real-world job, and so I'd imagine that'd be the case here, too.
Appreciate you becoming a fan. Welcome to B/R! Keep up the good work.
