It’s almost impossible for Davide Nardi to walk down Comm Ave and not run in to someone he knows.

“I’ve grown up here all my life,” says the Boston native. “So I had to make my time at BU different. I got that by meeting so many people.”

Nardi has been a jack-of-all-trades around the BU Today offices for the past four years, and the staff has watched him blossom from a typical, somewhat uncertain freshman with an interest in journalism to a thoroughly outgoing adult whose anthropology major seems to be a perfect fit.

“My parents are from a small town in Italy, where everybody knows everybody,” he says. “So I’ve always had that mentality that if I know someone, I’m going to say hi to them.”

    Remembering our interview

    I remember fondly the interview you did with me for BU Today on the trumpet competition in 2008, Davide – you conducted yourself so well, made me feel at ease, and put together quite a nice feature. Congratulations on finishing your degree, and I wish you the very best in your career!
