Bradley Zint has fallen into a harbor, deciphered Sarah Palin, worked 21-hour days, heard the Vienna Philharmonic, felt the wind off the Arctic Ocean, photographed from 35,000 feet, rock climbed in the desert, slept in his car, missed lunch, toured a rocket facility and been in the presence of ghosts – all in the name of journalism.

He’s a San Diego native who caught the journalism bug not long after starting college. It’s a bug that’s gotten him up-close to celebrities, politicians and award-winning middle school science whizzes. He even once sat in front of Tom Hanks, who some say he resembles. Hanks was not available for comment to confirm said resemblance.

His favorite movie is a tie between “Citizen Kane” and “For a Few Dollars More.” His favorite writer is, pretty much hands down, famous WWII war correspondent Ernie Pyle.

When not working the copy desk – his current job post – Bradley likes to explore the outdoors, add too many movies on his Netflix queue and wander Wikipedia. He also works part time at the Disneyland Resort in a behind-the-scenes capacity for its shows and parades.
