A home-schooled middle child who played King’s Quest V instead of Spin the Bottle: Sounds like a typical nerd. San Diego State Outstanding Graduate in journalism Beth Elderkin is a fun, engaging and skilled multimedia journalist who’s proud to be a nerd. Beth has reported on just about anything, be it university harassment policies, military affairs, U.S./Mexico border relations, CSU faculty protests, current affairs in journalism, vegetarian wine pairings or mobile iPad gaming. That’s because she’s studied just about anything. Beth started community college at 13, learning about everything under the sun: digital photography with Adobe Photoshop, video editing and production with Final Cut Pro, publishing using Adobe InDesign and QuarkXPress, computer-assisted news reporting with Microsoft Excel, French translation, medieval British literature, modern dance and others. Currently, Beth freelances in Northern California and writes game reviews for iPad Insight, featured on Flipboard.
