I'm a recently graduated freelance journalist looking to expand my freelancing opportunities - and a permanent staff position somewhere doesn't sound so bad, either. I'm experienced in writing, editing, multimedia, photography, and design, and have developed extensive leadership skills via senior staff positions at a variety of nationally-acclaimed student publications.
Envision Journalism is the fastest growing publication at the University of Oregon. Created as an online and tablet publication to fill the strange hole in dedicated environmental publications in the Pacific Northwest, Envision has already grown dramatically; starting with six members in total, Envision now boasts a staff of over 90.
Ethos Magazine is the University of Oregon's multicultural publication and has won multiple national awards, including the ACP Pacemaker, SPJ Mark of Excellence, and the Hearst Award for Feature Stories. It's also the second-largest publication on campus, after the Emerald Media Group.
Flux Magazine is the premier student publication of the UO School of Journalism and Communication, and servers as the human interest publication for campus. It is also by far the most decorated of the student publications, winning over 100 national award across multiple categories, from design to photography to reporting.
The Emerald Media Group - formally the Oregon Daily Emerald - is the University of Oregon's student newspaper. This is the same publication that some in the industry, including Poynter and Columbia, think might just be exploring the path of the future of not just collegiate journalism, but professional journalism as well.
Last year, I founded Envision Media, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to supporting environmental and community journalism. Currently counting Envision Journalism, Ethos Magazine, and the Oregon Voice as affiliates, Envision Media is working on expanding throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Engage 2012 was a national journalism competition for K-12 students revolving around the objective of producing powerful, insightful multimedia segments centering around the 2012 election season that tied back to the home community of the students.
