To obtain a job as a broadcast news producer or sports reporter. 


I'm a senior journalism major at Washington and Lee University, interested in pursuing a career as a television news producer or sports reporter.  I am currently the sports reporter for The Rockbridge Report, a student-produced newscast, and the Editor-in-Chief of inGeneral Magazine.  I am also the Sports Director for the campus radio station, WLUR 91.5 FM and a supervisor for intramural sports.  I spend my free time singing with the W&L Chamber Singers, practicing guitar, and doing creative writing.
