As a reporter, I'm interested in immersing myself in social policy. What makes communities function, how institutions impact the individual and the role accurate information has in this process is what I hope to better understand as a journalist.
Loyalist College has taught me the technical aspects of the reporting process. How to produce fact-based stories using multiple mediums are the stepping stones to my pursuit in this career.
I'm about to turn 30 and I'm entering the third and final year of my college degree in Journalism: online print and broadcast. I bring a passion and social awareness to the stories I produce. I hope you enjoy some samples of the stories I produced with QNet News.
My first story. It was strictly text and first person. I was told by my instructor afterwards that this was the only time I'd be allowed to write first person for QNet News.
I learned how to grab critical quotes from a lengthy event while producing this story.
Compilation of live tweets during a debate for the federal election. My instructors described it as being "professional calibre."
A multiple media story about a Belleville planning committee trying to get ahead of the potential legalization of marijuana.
A good chance to see how my camera skills had come along this year. The lighting and choices I made were a lot better than older stories.
An emotional human interest story. It was also a chance to dabble with a multimedia video.
My first attempt at radio lineup. It was nerve racking but I got over it pretty quickly.
There were a lot of complex names in this newscast. It was a good chance to practice phonetics on the radio.
