Jeff Bell made his way to the Times Colonist, his hometown newspaper, in 1990 after a few years at community newspapers in British Columbia. He began his TC career as a feature writer before moving into cityside news.
His current duties include a weekly column Good Neighbours, which highlights the efforts of people and organizations to make the community a better place.
Bell has an English degree from the University of Victoria and a journalism certificate from the Langara campus of Vancouver Community College.
Beyond the newspaper building, he coaches a little soccer, plays golf very badly and tries to keep up to all his nieces and nephews.
