A New Adventure!

I’ll just repost the message I sent to my Facebook friends here. I’ll be joining two incredible organizations in the fall to honor two amazing men.

So. Pumped.




Just announcing here that I have officially been hired as a city reporter for The Winter Haven News Chief. I will be covering Haines City, Auburndale, and Polk City for the paper. I don’t think I could be more excited.

In the future, I will be posting less of my clips to this site. Will stick to the bigger pieces and keep the shorter stuff on my profile page on my newspaper’s website. That page can be found here.

ACP San Francisco

Hello all,

Just posting to announce that I’ve been selected to present a workshop during the 2013 Associated Collegiate Press Conference in San Francisco. My session will focus on long-form journalism (it’s not dead) and especially how it relates to sports. I’ll be joined by John Hilsenroth for a portion of the presentation as well.

Also, my apologies on the glaring lack of recent articles or posts here. I’ll be working over the next week to get my most recent published work reflected.



Summer ’12 Update

Heading into the end of June, I’m nearing the end of my internship with WFLA News Channel 8 and the beginning of my two-month internship with Creative Loafing Tampa. If everything goes according to plan, by the time I graduate next spring, I’ll have had professional experience with more than 10 different publications / organizations during my time at the University of Tampa. There are so many things I have yet to learn in life, but at this point, you can’t say I’m not trying.

Looking forward to publishing some video clips from Ch. 8 and some writing clips from Creative Loafing in the near future. Please click on the contact tab and shoot me an email if you have any inquiries.

An Exciting Time

I’m hanging out, watching the Seattle skyscrapers turn grey from these inevitable Washington clouds. I’m blasting Alkaline Trio, getting ready to see the Experience Music Project and the Science Fiction Hall Of Fame, before these next three days that will be filled to the brim with journalism.

I find it appropriate that I’m launching my online portfolio while I’m here, at the Associated Collegiate Press’s National College Journalism Convention. I’m feeling pretty well about lots of things that are happening right now; it’s truly one of the most exciting times in my life.

I hope you enjoy what you read and be sure to contact me with any inquiries about anything.
