I would like to secure a position as a journalist for a daily or weekly newspaper with a strong desire to write news articles and columns, feature stories and sports-based articles and columns as well.

Georgetown College in August 2003
Nineteen months as sports reporter at the Flemingsburg Gazette in Flemingsburg, Kentucky.
Eight years and nine months at the Ledger Independent in Maysville, Kentucky as a news and sports reporter and columnist.
Began at the Maysville Mercury in February 2015, and still employed there as a writer/columnist.

I am a gifted writer who loves doing so and will bring a great attitude and work ethic into any writing position. I work well with others and can accept honest criticism of my work. I can also provide
extensive examples of my work.
