About Me

I’m a third-year undergraduate majoring in Political Science at Oregon State University with a minor in Applied Journalism. I have worked in a variety of roles for our student newspaper The Daily Barometer and the umbrella organization for our college media program Orange Media Network. In my spare time I enjoy backpacking, reading and podcasts.

Experience

Web & Mobile Manager

Orange Media Network September 2018 - Present

I currently oversee digital strategy for a college media organization with six mediums: The Daily Barometer newspaper, three magazines, a radio station and a TV station. I directly manage three staff members, write quick-turnaround news stories and utilize Google Analytics to inform coverage decisions. I routinely use BLOX CMS to publish web content and moderate user comments.

Engagement Editor

The Daily Barometer February - May 2018

I created social media plans and tracked daily content on web, Facebook and Twitter, increasing website pageviews 28 percent above the revious term. I also covered breaking news/developing stories on multiple platforms.

Student Government Beat Reporter

The Daily Barometer September 2017 - February 2018

In addition to writing an investigative story exposing a white nationalist in student government, I wrote weekly enterprise articles and developed strong source relationships. To bring a multimedia approach to coverage I shot and edited video stories using Sony NX5 cameras and Adobe Premiere Pro.

Summer Editor-in-Chief

The Daily Barometer June - August 2017

In this position I assigned and edited all content for a monthly print product, designed pages using Adobe InDesign and oversaw production of weekly news videos. The best part about this position was coaching eight print/multimedia reporters to improve their skills.

Copy Editor and News Contributor

The Daily Barometer January - May 2017

I line edited and fact-checked stories before publication while also reporting breaking and spot news.

Podcast Producer

Orange Media Network January - December 2017

I co-produced/hosted a political news program and edited audio using Adobe Audition.

Education

Pursuing B.A. in Political Science

Oregon State University September 2016 - Present

As an Honors College student I work under Dr. Rorie Solberg in the American Politics Research Group, focusing on how the judiciary is covered in the era of fake news. I'm also pursuing a minor in Applied Journalism to prepare for work in a newsroom after graduation (June 2020).
