Web Editor/Staff Writer
I began as a staff writer primarily focused on Arts and Entertainment reviews, but expanded my role over time to a utility editor, mostly for A&E but also for the News section, in addition to editorials. I also worked on in-depth reporting, including stories on local drug dealers and an interactive database of university salaries.
In addition to writing and reporting, I was hired as a copy editor, overseeing the articles in the paper and also assisting in the paper's overall design.
In Fall 2011, I started The Verbal Hearables Podcast with A&E Editor Brian Rosemeyer. The show was recorded and posted regularly, and Brian and I, in addition to co-hosting, wrote, edited, and posted each episode to the Reporter's website, the podcast blog, and iTunes.
As of January 2012, I was named the Web Editor for the paper and endeavored to create a web presence for the Reporter that extends beyond a simple redundancy of print content.
