Hello. I’m Andrew Long.
I live in Mesa, Arizona and Denver, Colorado with my wife and three dogs. I am a journalist, geographer, board gamer, and traveler. You can find my fiction at wiggleghost.com .
I studied public relations and journalism at Mesa Community College, where I was the editor of the Mesa Legend. I’m a graduate of Arizona State University with a degree in geography and a focus on GIS and spatial analysis.
I spent 10 years as a newspaper journalist with the East Valley Tribune, and then the Arizona Republic. At the Republic, I was the senior news artist on the A1 team, where I worked with reporters and editors to create informational graphics and maps that improved single copy sales.
After I left the Republic, I helped co-found the Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting.
