I’m a digital journalist in the last year of my computer science degree in San Angelo, Texas. I love making websites and writing, and I focus on creating sites that are accessible, fast, and great looking.
I grew up in San Angelo but spent most of my adulthood living in Brooklyn, NY, where I worked in the print industry making cool stuff for clients like the New York Public Library and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
I moved back to San Angelo in 2018 to pursue my degree and got a job as a camera operator at the local news station. It was only a short time before I found my way into the newsroom, first as a news photographer, then as a multimedia journalist. Eventually I moved over to the digital team and covered local news by writing articles instead of shooting and editing video.
Now I lead a small team of digital journalists for the station’s website. I’m not out in the field getting news as much as I used to be, but I’m proud of the team we’ve been able to build, and it’s been amazing to see the growth of the journalists who work for me.
I still love journalism and serving my community, but I would like to make a change. I’m looking for a position as a technical writer or a front-end developer focusing on semantic HTML and accessibility. My experience in journalism, education in computer science, and focus on accessibility allow me to understand complex subjects and present them to people in a way they can immediately understand.
