Hello, everyone!

I'm a graduate student in journalism at Ohio University. I'm currently focusing on data reporting, internet law and non-fiction production (see the documentaries that Vox and its subsidiaries make.)

I've had previous professional experience at The New York Times and Cleveland Scene Magazine, and I was also a finalist for a AEJMC research paper competition during my time in undergrad.

Also, I really love baseball and collect baseball cards.

Federated microblogging for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
