My name is Conor Dowley and I am thrilled to be the newest reporter at the Sequim Gazette. I’m joining an excellent team and am looking forward to share the news and stories of our area with all of you.
I’ve spent my career in journalism working online, most recently spending four years covering sports for SBNation. Before that, I worked for various sites doing sports coverage as well, but I am eager to get more involved with covering more local stories and events.
I was born and raised in the Seattle area and came to live in Sequim about four years ago after spending most of my adult life visiting the town both to enjoy the area and to visit my parents, who moved to Sequim after I graduated high school in 2005. I met my wife and got married here and plan on raising our family here as well.
Some of you my know me from my time working at the Boys & Girls Club here in Sequim, where I’ve served as the teen room director among other roles in my year-plus at the local clubhouse. I’ve also been involved in volunteering at Olympic Theatre Arts, working mostly on the lighting and tech side of things.
It is a privilege to be joining the staff here at the Gazette and I’ll be doing my utmost to bring you the best I can in every story that I write.
