Below are work samples from media and communications internships during my college and early professional career. I’ve written feature stories, press releases and game recaps featured on university, athletic program and local sports coverage websites. Through these experiences,  I learned interviewing skills, how to organize information and how to incorporate quotes, facts and statistics into a narrative.
