Asst. Feature Editor
After a semester writing for The Daily Orange’s Pulp feature section, I joined the in-house staff as an Assistant Feature Editor. I worked with the team inside and outside of production to print the newspaper four times-a-week and plan 15 weeks of print and digital stories and collectives.
During the summer following my junior year at SU, I spent six weeks with the Eagle Newspaper team. Covering parades, town meetings and other feature stories, I worked with the editors of the Eagle Observer newspaper and the Homegrown magazine to produced stories and capture photos.
The Stand prints monthly sharing the stories of the South Side Syracuse community. I first started as a content editor, laying out stories to be printed. The following semester, I spent time in the South Side community with residents sharing stories about a volunteer homeless shelter, a 40-year-old hair salon and restoring one of its neighborhoods.
In my final semester at SU, I worked with the NewsHouse staff producing feature stories about the controversial Theta Tau videos, in which the story included Knight Lab’s Soundcite audio story features of soundbites from students about campus inclusion. Another multimedia story I worked on included pieces about a MakerSpace Center on campus.
