Work has previously appeared: Community Newspaper, Online Newsmagazine

In May 2006, I walked away from Keene State College (NH) with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and high self-expectations.

But what inclined me to spend four years and some hundred thousand dollars to pursue an education in a field with diminishing job opportunities? It's quite simple: the values that a free press embodies and its obligation to any functioning democracy are compelling reasons for any respectable citizen to join its ranks.

After the blinding years of high school, my (college) professors introduced me to the "actual world," a far cry from the idealistic virtues taught in grade school history classes.

My first journalism professor, Marianne Salcetti revealed the voiceless, the underprivileged, institutionalized racism, the expanding disparity syndrome, and the sleuths of spin, the devil's art (politics), environmental degradation, the erosion of civil liberties, war-for-profit, and on and on.

Jesus Pulitzer, where’s Murrow and Reed, I thought to myself? Who are these war-mongering self styled Machiavellians that undermine the essential dignity of a democratic "free" society? What's happening, who knows what’s true and what’s a rearranged VNR or press release? This truly is the "Kingdom of Fear."

Unbridled businessmen homogenizing and dictating media outlets, defense contracts, governmental negligence/intrusion, and the working poor are only a flask full of reasons why I bought a thick dictionary, AP manual and a sick sense of humor.

Then I viewed the ancient film, “Metropolis” and my decision was final. Somebody needs to advocate for justice, truths, and the basic human rights that the US of A prides its legacy on.

I’m no Democrat and certainly no Republican. I am simply an aspiring young journalist intent on defending justice and sharing the stories of our vast human condition.

Drop me a line if interested in employing a true patriotic American.
