Lewisville Texan Journal Writers

Miscellaneous
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2012/2/25 15:50:00 (5328 reads)

Over the past few months, the Lewisville Texan Journal has focused on transitioning into a forum with multiple writers, and varying expertise and points of view. In addition, we've started carrying syndicated columns from select writers.

This post is to introduce them.

Editors
Open in new windowSteve Southwell (WhosPlayin) is the Editor-in-chief, and currently the writer of most of the news stories published in the Lewisville Texan Journal. Southwell writes opinion pieces from a "pragmatic progressive" point of view in The Editor's Column, but works to keep it objective on original coverage of local news and events. Born and raised in Waco, Texas, Southwell attended the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science in Denton. After spending time in the U.S. Marine Corps, rising to the rank of Sergeant, he obtained a BBA from the University of North Texas. By day, Southwell is an information technology consultant specializing in web applications. When he's not on the road, working for a client, Steve lives in Lewisville with his wife Jennifer (Fluffy) and two sons. His hobbies are playing guitar, drinking beer, singing karaoke, and shooting - though not all at once.

Open in new windowBrandon Cooper (Runfellow) is an Associate Editor, who not only writes his column, Parallel Development, but also writes the occasional news story and political commentary. Brandon has his own blog at bcfeed.com. Brandon lives in Lewisville, where he works as a track coach. Brandon also works part time for the Denton County Democratic Party. Partisan politics are not his only interest though: At the end of his senior year at Lewisville High School, Brandon ran for Mayor of Lewisville against Mayor Gene Carey, who went on to be Lewisville's longest serving mayor. Brandon continues to follow local Lewisville issues with keen interest. Brandon graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Radio, Television, and Film.


Open in new windowJennifer Southwell (Mamask8z - A.K.A. "Fluffy") is an Associate Editor, occasionally writing columns, but quite often working to keep your Editor honest and fair. Jennifer is the best Licensed Massage Therapist in Lewisville with her own studio in the same office building as the Lewisville Texan Journal's headquarters. Raised in Lewisville, and Pilot Point, Jennifer earned a Bachelor's in Business Administration from the University of North Texas. She also serves on the board of directors for Keep Lewisville Beautiful. Jennifer's hobbies are running, and flat track roller derby, which she writes about from time to time. She is married to Steve (WhosPlayin) and has two sons attending Lewisville schools.

Daniels recently served as a precinct chairman for the Denton County Republican Party.
