Luke Reynolds, Copy Editor

Luke Reynolds is the former engagement editor, and current copy editor for The Broadside. He has always been interested in the news and how we consume media. He is finishing his transfer degree with plans to go to Oregon State University-Cascades to major in computer science, as well as obtain a minor in journalism. Bend is his hometown, but he wouldn’t say no for an opportunity to live in Europe. Writing is his favorite creative outlet and he would love to be an author someday. He also likes producing/editing silly videos on the side and gets a kick out of messing with a green screen. Finally, he highly recommend the album Twilight by ELO.
