About me

When I was little, I used to write books on an electric typewriter. After that, I started many novels on an old, old desktop in my room.

I've come a long way from that.

Originally from Cary, N.C., I went to school at UNC Chapel Hill and graduated from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication in 2009. I was a member of the Marching Tar Heels and am still an avid Carolina sports fan.

I started working at the Charlotte Observer soon after graduation, covering high school sports and managing the websites and social media accounts for a new set of community weekly papers in the Lake Norman and Cabarrus County areas. In April 2010 I moved to start two new Observer community papers in south Charlotte.

On June 16, 2012, I tricked this beautiful girl named Courtney into marrying me.

I am currently editor of CharlotteFive, a website and newsletter associated with the Observer and aimed at young people in the city.

I'm active on Twitter (@CoreyInscoe) and have a professional(ish) Facebook page.
