Do you have a news tip? A story you want to tell? A spot on your team opening up this winter?

I’m continually searching for new opportunities to learn more about storytelling, journalism, and methods of communication and how those skills can be combined to make an impact as a public service. I’m also interested in volunteer opportunities, including grant-writing and direct service, and opportunities to engage my Spanish language skills. Last but not least, if you have any suggestions or critiques of my past work, I welcome and appreciate them.
