I am also a political writer for a number of newspapers. I am a reporter and columnist for the Fairfield Minuteman, the Register Citizen and the Bridgeport Banner. I have worked as an intern in the district office of now lame-duck Congressman Christopher Shays, who recently lost to Mr. Jim Himes. For this reason, expect my reporting on Mr. Himes to be a bit bias, possibly bordering occasionally on volatile.
Personally, I live in Fairfield, Connecticut, and I am a senior in high school at Fairfield Prep, a local Jesuit school. I have been accepted into Fordham University, where I plan on attending. I plan on joining ROTC during college, and possibly going to law school shortly thereafter. Outside of writing and school, I enjoy things most high school students do - I love hanging out with friends, I am a big skier, and I enjoy playing sports. Unlike most high school students, I am currently listening to the call of a Long Tailed Duck on yesterday's NPR Talk of the Nation. Needless to say, I guess I like to learn... useless information.
Politically, I am a moderate conservative - I am entirely fiscally conservative and capitalist, but I begin to shake from the party line on social issues. I am in support of gay marriage and the entire separation of Church and state. In fact, I generally consider my pro-life stance to be my only socially right-leaning stance. Look forward to daily posts on everything Connecticut. Hopefully, you'll find me humorous and interesting, so stop by whenever you can!
