**In his own words:** I was born in Denver in June 1987, and since then, I’ve lived in seven states. After editing my high school newspaper for two years, I began my freshman year at Iowa State in August 2005. I graduated in December 2009 and moved to New York two weeks later to intern for *Us Weekly*. I was promoted to assistant web editor in June 2010, and moved up the ranks twice more in the next three years. In August 2013, I accepted a senior editor position with E! Online. I’m a big fan of going to the movies, spinning at Soul Cycle and volunteering for charity: water.
