As a reporter for a daily newspaper in Dubuque, Iowa, I have established myself as an accurate reporter with a keen instinct for digging out news. Work the following year as an education reporter gave me the ability to reach out to children and families for strong feature stories. My commitment to journalism has consistently been strong, and as a Marquette University student I started Milwaukee’s first street newspaper to address issues of local community members. I am able to telecommute and have an advanced knowledge of content management systems as well as the Web in general. Stories will include video, links and html when possible. I am working out of the Milwaukee area currently, but am open to travel, and am considering a move to the Chicago area.
