Full-time student

Location icon United States of America

I'm a 20-year-old double major in psychology and journalism at Towson University. I plan on pursuing a doctorate of clinical psychology after my graduation in 2018. I would love to work with multimedia journalism while I continue my graduate studies. Vice would be my ideal choice of employer. Their creative editorial style is similar to mine, and I really like the off-beat reporting styles they utilize.

My skills and hobbies include proficient experience in photography, film, copy editing and writing. I have spent many years mastering editing programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Illustrator, and Final Cut Pro. More recently, I've had practice with HTML/CSS and Adobe Dreamweaver.

I spent two years as the Chief Copy, Design, and Photography editor for my high school. My knowledge of these programs along with my experience give me the ability to produce a soundly and beautifully created product, as well as give me a leg-up on other candidate who may not have this much hands-on training.

True Life: Drug Dealer

It was an unusually warm evening for November. I remember because I was standing on the side of the road - wearing capris, a t-shirt, and metal cuffs around my wrists - as I watched my girlfriend be shoved into a police car. What seemed like hours (more like 15 minutes) later, I was in...
