Michael Conway

Journalist/Sneakerhead

Location icon United States

As a recent graduate from Marist College with a degree in Communications, double concentration in Journalism and Sports Communications my goal is to obtain a job in the media field. My experiences include working with television and radio production as well as on-camera talent. Working my way up the editorial ladder with the student paper from a contributor, staff writer, and eventually editor of the sports vertical we covered a variety of professional, local, and collegiate sports topics. During the Fall semester of my junior year, I got the opportunity to study abroad in Dublin, Ireland. In addition to that semester abroad, I also received the opportunity to participate in Marist in Manhattan, a special internship program located on New York City's Upper East Side.

My experience includes internships with Footwear News and Complex Networks in a social media and editorial capacity. Working regularly with both publications, publishing content, and curating social media on a daily basis I gained valuable experience on the inside of the content industry. I’m a journalist by trade and a sneakerhead at heart. In the middle of the Venn diagram where those two traits meet is when I am at my best. Other interests and hobbies include cigars, music, my friends, and Netflix.

Users answer questions to find out which popular sneaker-the Nike Air Monarch or Yeezy 700, for example-embodies their alter dad ego.
