A native of Newark, Del., I cover business and write features as a multimedia reporter for the Cecil Whig in Elkton, Md. I also cover city council for the Whig's sister paper, the Newark Post.
In August 2011, I was chosen to help pilot American Consolidated Media's Digital Reporter Project. Using an iPad2, I can submit stories as well as shoot, edit and post videos from the field.
A 2011 graduate of the University of Delaware, I spent two years as editor-in-chief of the student-run newspaper The Review, where I led the paper in its transition into multimedia production and daily Web updates. During my senior year, The Review was named a finalist for the Pacemaker Award.
I believe that a journalist's job is to tell as complete a story as possible, which often includes more than just written words. Whenever I go out on an assignment, I take my camera, iPad and voice recorder so I can produce multimedia packages, as well. Though journalism is without a doubt changing, I believe the need for quality reporting will never go away. While I remain a print journalist at heart, I'm always willing to experiment with new technologies to better tell a story.
