Media and Journalism
I was the managing editor for the Des Moines Area Community College student newspaper, The Chronicle. I also sat on the editorial board and was the student government reporter. As a member of the editorial board, I was selected to write the Chronicle's first-ever endorsement for a presidential candidate in 2004. It was probably the most fun I've had as a reporter. Below is what I consider some of my best work.
I've done layout (mainly with Adobe InDesign) work for the Chronicle and for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Mapleton 12th Ward, in Mapleton, Utah.
I also am a photographer and editor taking photos for the Chronicle and for the Iowa State Senate. As part of my photography interest, I know Adobe's Photoshop and Apple's iPhoto and Aperture very well. I've also done work with video and have extensive knowledge in Apple's Final Cut Pro and iMovie.
In 2006, I was on-air talent and producer for KDRA Drake University's local radio station in the 7 p.m. slot
