Fischer Genau, News Writer

I’ve been called many things over the years. A thinker, a maverick, the homeschooled kid, “a little arrogant”, and “kind of an intellectualizing jerk”. I’ve also been called a writer. Mostly by my mom and my Nana, as they were the ones reading the manuscripts I wrote on PowerPoint slides when I was 10, but I’d like to think that I’ve grown into the label.

I served as a staff writer, Photo and Design Editor, and columnist on my high school newspaper, plus I’ve written tons of journal entries, hilarious text messages, incisive movie reviews on Letterboxd, and pithy little bios like this one.

I’m also a working photographer and videographer, a pretty good drummer, a passable rock climber, and an atrocious surfer. And I’m psyched to jump into journalism.
