Amber graduated from j-school in 2006 and, not long after, relocated to the Tampa Bay area for no other reason than she assumed a quarter-life crisis would be a better experience if sun and palm trees were involved. Favorite local things consist of Creative Loafing (obviously), Jannus Landing, WMNF, The Undertow, Davis Island’s dog park, Skipper’s Smokehouse and she has not missed a Gasparilla parade yet. Some people might say she loves her dog, Hendrix, a little too much, but it is not like she dresses him or anything (he is a 100 lb yellow lab; she would need a man’s sweater). It is just that, hanging out with the big, goofy creature can be more entertaining than with her own species most days. In addition to her four legged BFF, she loves Sublime, coffee, driving over the Howard Franklin at sunset, taking pictures, tattoos and collecting quotes from books, movies, lyrics and random things her friends say.
