Work has previously appeared: Daily Newspaper, Local/Regional Magazine, Local Radio

I am currently a senior at the University of Minnesota, majoring in Journalism and Classics. I am currently working as a student reporter for the Minneapolis Star Tribune covering the western suburbs. I have done news updates and other duties as KUOM, the University’s student radio station. I have also written for Twin Cities Spaces magazine, a regional lifestyle publication published by Northwest Publications. I also work selling industrial supplies for a Fortune 500 company and live in suburban Minneapolis with my wife. Because of my diverse background, I am able to draw on a wide palette of experiences for my writing. I will graduate Summa Cum Laude from the University of Minnesota this upcoming May, having received a strong education that places a high premium on journalistic quality and ethics. I have references and clips available upon request, and if you have any further questions, please feel free to call me at (612) 834-9511. Thank you.
