Split summer: Phoenix Business Journal and Reynolds Center

My summer as an intern with the Phoenix Business Journal and Reynolds Center started earlier than most

… And it has been an interesting eight weeks.

I’m a Phoenix native, so no moving or adjusting to a new place was required. But working in business is a jump for me.

I’ve covered politics and pubic safety, but business is different than both. I’ve learned more here than in other jobs. I am now more fluent in the language of solar energy, due to an interview with Lane Garrett, CEO of two local solar engineering and distribution companies.

I interviewed Andrew Thomas, Buz Mills and the man who co-invented covered coronary stents, Dr. Richard Heuser. I got to interview Kai Ryssdal in person and put a face to the voice I hear every night at six. And I talked to Kim Quillen, business editor for the Times-Picayune, who has seen her share of crisis coverage.

It’s been a busy few weeks, but I’ve quite enjoyed them. We’ll see what the final two will bring.
