As a reporter, freelance writer and scholar, I developed my mantra that prose should be innovative, no matter how routine the assignment, and accessible, no matter how technical the subject matter. I seek writing projects that force me out of my comfort zone because I enjoy the challenge of telling stories in nontraditional ways.
Research is of the utmost importance in all my work, which is one reason I read several sources every day to stay abreast of news trends and the media industry. I sharpened these research skills — along with my ability to relay difficult concepts from dense reading material in concise terms — in graduate school.
Additionally, please visit my blog, mus(ic)ings, to read some pieces I wrote for fun in my off-time when I lived in Kansas City. You’ll find my explorations of technology, sports and culture through the lens of music.
