Behind-the-Desk: Copy Editor Ben Solis

BenSolisName: Ben Solis

Hometown: Canton, Mich.

Position: Copy Editor

Years with CM Life: Less than one year.

What does your position entail? I am the first line of defense against all errors of copy and design elements that appear in the newspaper before it is printed.

What was the first story you covered for CM Life? It was the Better World Book story, about the different donation bins on campus.

If a movie was made of your life, what genre would it be and who would play you? It would be a crime noir thriller starring Javier Bardem as me.

What’s the best part about working at CM Life? I would have to say being around other people who are as addicted to journalism as I am.

If you had to eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, where would it be? Bucharest Diner in Detroit. They serve a mean chicken schwarma.

What’s something most people don’t know about you? I’m a drummer, but my first recorded piece of music is a tape my dad made with me freestyle rapping to “Peaches” by the Presidents of the United States.
