Work has previously appeared: Community Newspaper, Online Newsmagazine

My name is Matt Rooney and I specialize in entertainment news with a focus on film. I was the entertainment editor for my collegiate newspaper, Wingspan, at Laramie County Community College. I have recently attained my Associates in Mass Media and am eager to work with and on anyone deems me right for. A person can only spend so much time busing tables at an old folks home. My hobbies include boating, hiking, fine foods and drink, film, art, big game hunting, a good Nicolas Sparks novel and over-exaggerating my bios. Jokes aside I find an entertaining read is key to good writing. Sure, editing is important, but, who really notices the over-usage of commas., am I right?
