More About Me

Because photo sliders can only tell you so much.

It's 2017, which means Tinder is fighting for legitimacy, reality show figures are running for office and selfie sticks are quickly becoming 'in', rather than 'in'-sane. Good news? That means that I'm becoming more and more handy with each passing day.

Hi, my name is Pat, and I'm a digital journalist and a web specialist who can help you with basically any sort of business or task you have online. I may have trained as a journalist, but in my undergrad and master's work, I've developed a passion for the web and mass communications, and I'd be happy to tell you more about it.

I also have a fanatic obsession with sports, a suprising knack for musical theater and I firmly believe that all of us, no matter how small our voice may feel, can help make the world, and the web, a much more user-friendly environment... Have I lost you yet?

No? Good, because the previous paragraph is as solid of a glimpse into my head as I can provide. There's a lot going on in there, but I'm driven by a natural curiosity for new experiences, and I back it with a deep and varied skill set in navigating the online world.

Education

You know, a lot of people go to college for seven years.
And not all of them are called 'doctors.'

Master's in Professional Journalism - Ex. Graduation: 2017

I started my graduate studies working as a graduate assistant in digital journalism courses, and have made online media a focus of my studies.

During my time as an undergrad, I worked on the student newspaper, helped launch a student advertising agency and worked on immersive projects such as covering the Special Olympics national games and writing for an agriculture magazine.

There's a reason I spend so much time on the computer...
