David Jasper (Features reporter)

David Jasper is a features reporter at The Bulletin. He was born and raised in Miami, Fla. and majored in psychology at the University of Georgia. Pushing the limits of his psych degree, he worked at a group home in Illinois and a youth detox in Tampa. He wised up and began interning, then working, at The Weekly Planet (now Creative Loafing), an alt-weekly newspaper in Tampa. From 1995-2001, he wrote humor, book reviews, immersive cover stories and more. In 2001, he moved to Bend to work at The Bulletin, where he writes general features and covers the arts, books and the outdoors. When not writing, the married father of three enjoys reading, running, skateboarding, bike commuting and learning to play guitar.
