Welcome to my online portfolio! I hope you enjoy your time on here as you get to know me a little better.
I’m an award-winning journalist who also has skills in editing, design, photography, multimedia and social media branding. I’ve covered sports, religion, and border issues and immigration in the Dominican Republic.
I’ve also helped a major regional bank succeed through social media through branding and customer service.
I do consulting work of many kinds, for large companies, small businesses and private individuals. If you need my services in communications, social media branding, writing, editing, design or photography, get in touch with me on my “Getting Social” page.
I’m versatile, flexible, overly hard working, loyal, friendly, fun, and a team player. (If you’d like my resume while you’re reading this, click here)
Here’s more than the “Me in 30 Seconds” version of me, if you want to read that far:
I’m a journalist at heart. I grew up reading a printed newspaper (you know, the one they used to deliver to your front door, rain or shine), and it’s been something I’ve wanted to do for as long as I can remember. That hasn’t stopped me from embracing the digital age of journalism. I report, design, and edit the ”printed” word. I also shoot and edit video, take photos, create podcasts, and blog. I’ve immersed myself in social media, and recently helped drag a 137+ year-old bank into the 21st Century in social media, garnering recognition for the way we were doing things.
I’m originally from the Salt Lake City area, and live there now, but have also lived in the Phoenix area and Idaho. I received my bachelor’s degree in Print Journalism from Brigham Young University. I completed my Master’s degree at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University faster than anyone else in school history.
My favorite thing to do is enjoy time with my wife and two daughters. I love all kinds of sports, love to be outdoors and I love to spend time with friends.
