Tyler Panlilio, Managing Editor for Online

Hello! I'm a senior majoring in journalism from Naperville. Before becoming managing editor for online, I was a columnist, assistant editor and editor for the section. In my free time, I enjoy lighting scented candles and listening to Frank Ocean alone in my room. I like artsy movies, banana bread and the smell outside after it rains. If I could meet one person before I die, that person would be Ryan Gosling.
