The Lantern

The Lantern is the Ohio State University student-run newspaper. I started serving as a volunteer photojournalist for the paper in November 2007 and continued as a staff photographer throughout spring 2008. In the summer, I was hired as an Editor and continued as the Multimedia Editor for the following two quarters.

As the multimedia editor, I oversaw two excellent assistant multimedia editors and had the opportunity to provide training for a class of 25 students (usually on an individual basis) on a variety of multimedia skills from creating slideshows to audio/video production. The multimedia team also ran the newspaper's website and social media accounts.

Buckeye TV

Buckeye TV or Buck-i TV was the Ohio State University student-run broadcast news station. Broadcast journalism was demoted from a full field of study at Ohio State to just a few classes and an audio/video minor by the time I attended the university. I took what classes I could and served as an Editor and Audio Director for Buckeye TV 19 News broadcasts and as a technical director, director, audio director, and camera operator for TV programs that included news, talk shows, and gameshows. Much of my work was behind the camera and helped train my classmates on the equipment and software.

The gallery features some behind-the-scenes photos of Buckeye TV 19 News and other shows.

Cougar News

Cougar News was the Columbus State student-run newspaper. I served in some capacity for over two years including as a photojournalist, writer, web designer, graphic designer, Photo Editor, and Editor-in-Chief, overseeing an awesome staff.
