Features Editor

Spencer Campbell writes features and edits service packages. A proud Texan (proud of the state, not its crazy), Spencer covered NASCAR for the Bristol (Virginia) Herald Courier, beach life for Gulfshore Life magazine, and commerce for Business North Carolina magazine. Based on that background, he has no real clue why 5280 agreed to employ him, though he’s certainly glad they did. Spencer, a Texas A&M University alumnus and almost graduate of the Mayborn School of Journalism at the University of North Texas (he’s one class shy!), has won too many honors to mention here. When not collecting journalism awards, Spencer enjoys golf, Netflix (his free HBO trial ran out), and filling awkward silences with idle chit-chat.
