Student Media Experience
At Truman's student produced paper, the Index, I work as a reporter and copy editor writing one to two stories weekly. Through copy editing, I thoughtfully read stories to find AP errors and edit understandability.
Detours Travel Magazine
Detours is the student produced travel magazine for which I am a writer and designer. I travel throughout Missouri, Iowa and Illinois writing about travel destinations. Then I design four to six page spreads.
News36 TV Station
Prepared packages for Truman’s student produced weekly news show.Duties include pitching story ideas, interviews, field shooting, writing a script and editing b-roll. I directed and produced a five-minute television show called Leader By eXample in Truman’s state-of-the-art studio.
As part of Truman’s comprehensive Election Day coverage, I served as the photographer for the team covering events from the state capital Jefferson City, as well as from Columbia, Missouri, in which we attended press conferences and parties for local candidates along with interviewing voters at the polls.Public Relations Experience
Projekt Oskar, a student-led initiative to bring a Russian Pop Superstar to Kirksville April 17, 2009, was a project that culminated with a press conference, colloquium and concert. I was responsible for coordinating backup dancers for the concert show by organizing practices, choreography and acting as a liaison between the dancers and The Oskar.
Recently I organized a fundraiser with a partner to help the local Humane Society. I created a sponsorship package, a flyer about the Humane Society and sign up sheets for volunteers. My partner reserved tables, made signs and budgeted the event.
