Welcome! My name is Ansley Pentz, and I’m a University of Florida journalism alumna, a restless adventurer, a big dreamer and a real bad dancer.
I write a heck of a lot. I currently work as the marketing assistant at the Hippodrome Theatre. You may have seen my name and byline a few other places, too: I served as a staff writer and the university editor at The Alligator, the largest student-run newspaper in the U.S.; worked as the public relations assistant at UF’s Digital Worlds Institute; completed a communications internship at UF Health; and worked as a marketing assistant for Feather Magazine.
Last summer, I jumped across the pond, where I catalogued my misadventures at ansleyacrosstheatlantic.wordpress.com. Since then, I’ve collected passport stamps and stories about open-container laws, losing toothbrushes in airports and finding friends with foreign accents. (I’ve also blogged at Gals of Gainesville, which is an embarrassing — but (somewhat endearingly) feminist — look at the writer I used to be.)
If you have a question, a job offer or a dang good pun, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
