Below is a collection of clips from my days as a student reporter at Wheaton College. As old (and sometimes embarassing!) as these articles are, I feel that they represent some good work. I took my job as a reporter very seriously and the selections below represent a small fraction of my total articles (not all of them survived). I wrote nearly every week during my first and second years of college, before I began work as a web designer.
If you're a prospective employer, you may have received this address after requesting writing samples. I know these articles are old, but after starting on a web design career, my output dropped considerably. Writing is like riding a bike, though--I don't think I've lost much and I do keep busy writing short (part)fiction when I have the time. I often don't post this work as it's not professional in nature and I do have submissions pending. Please take a look around at other items on the site if you'd like an idea of my general non-reportorial writing style.
