As of May 2012, I am a proud alumnus of the University of Wisconsin–Madison, having earned bachelor’s degrees in Communications and English. Apart from term papers and exams, I have extensive experience in writing of all varieties. As a student, I contributed articles to Wiscipedia, an online, user-based encyclopedia that references numerous facets of the University of Wisconsin and its academic programs. I was also a beat reporter for The Daily Cardinal, writing on finance committee meetings and budget hearings, and composed press releases for Fitchburg Fields, a local conservation non-profit.
A closeted cinephile, I was a blogger for the Wisconsin Union Directorate’s “Drive-In” Film Blog from 2009 to 2011. At the moment, I regularly contribute to two film and humor blogs, one of which I run in my spare time.
I recently had the privilege of working at the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools as a Public Relations intern, where I improved my skill sets in copywriting, social media marketing, and event promotion. Currently, I’m finishing my tenure as a Marketing & Web Design Intern at the Wisconsin Office of Justice Assistance. Please drop by the new site to check out the redesign project.
Think of this as a kind of “digital portfolio,” a medium that is both conveniently-accessed and environment-friendly. As such, I am always open to new and exciting opportunities. Feel free to contact me via email.
