My name is Alex, and I am an aspiring journalist. I am currently a senior at the University of Massachusetts, with great hopes and dreams of writing my way to an income!
I work for the Amherst Wire, a student-run online magazine, as their social media manager. You can follow us on Twitter @AmherstWire, or like us on Facebook. I also act as Co-Director of Public Relations for TEDxUMassAmherst, where I work with a team of 35 talented, motivated, and highly enthusiastic UMass students to put on the second annual TED conference on UMass’ campus.
Aside from social media, public relations, and online marketing, I have a passion for writing and music. I have been fortunate to find publications that have allowed me to combine these passions into music journalism. Alot of the clips on this site are from those experiences. You can find their sites here and here.
Other than that, I am your average college student; classes, volunteering, random dance sessions…the usual.
