Hello! Welcome to my site. I hope my work serves testament to my passion of writing, especially of the narrative variety. I am an award-winning media professional who is always looking for new opportunities within the communications fields.
At the end of March (2013), I closed out my tenure as an interactive web producer at WABC-TV/7online.com in New York City, to follow my wife’s career path and start a new chapter in Northwest Arkansas, a place where we met when I worked as a features writer at the Northwest Arkansas Times or two years.
I later moved to Connecticut to pursue my master’s degree in Interactive Communications at Quinnipiac University to expand my creativity as a writer into several digital platforms — while interning at Sports Illustrated Kids in the summer of 2010 during the process.
During my career, I have worn the hats of writer, editor, blogger, designer, photographer, cameraman and producer. I’ve worked in the mediums of print journalism (newspapers, magazines) TV and web. I look forward to see what the future holds in the coming months. (Update: My portfolio page on Contently.com, featuring my most recent work, can be viewed.).
Over the next few weeks, this site will be undergoing multiple updates, so please stay tuned for new and enhanced content.
