George Warner will be covering the jobs and economy beat. He just graduated Brown University this past December and feels at home in Providence, although he is originally from the suburbs of Boston. At Brown, he studied science and society, writing papers about things like how botanical gardens and botany helped establish nationalism in the early American republic. By mid-January, he’ll be in Washington, D.C., working as an Atlantic Media fellow for Government Executive. Last summer, he interned at The Nation and at Brown he wrote for The College Hill Independent, mostly writing and editing the Metro section. Outside of writing, he really enjoys playing basketball and soccer, and farming. Two summers ago, he helped start a small CSA outside of Providence that is still growing (in both food and members). He spent the holidays with his extended family in Miami and dreads returning to the Northeast with its cold weather and lack of good Cuban coffee.
