Hi, my name is Mike Higdon and I'm a Nevadan through and through. Born in Las Vegas and raised there for 18 years, I moved to Reno 14 years ago to study journalism and political science at the University of Nevada, Reno. For two years after graduation, I lived in Carson City and spent weekends around Lake Tahoe. Then, I moved to Midtown and now I live on Dickerson Road WAY before it’ll be cool  (before it was the cool thing to do #ThingsHipstersSay). A few years ago I created the blog Drinkable Reno, covering the business and politics of beer and spirits.

In my new role as the city life reporter, I cover urban life, gentrification, change and culture and continue my reporting on local booze news for the Reno Gazette Journal. It's my job to discover and share lifestyle and economic trends while translating city government and business news from wonk to normal people speak. And while I don't expect to give up navel gazing entirely, I investigate and report on the not-so-great parts of Reno that need real change and attention.

When I’m not working, I like to photograph people and places, light and objects that catch my eye. I prefer not to pose people because humans are more interesting without instruction. I’ve started collecting vintage cameras and developing my own film, which is a hobby that may or may not last.
