I am a senior at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Graduating in May 2018, I am pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism, Creative Computation and Computer Science.
I am looking to pursue a career in computational journalism and explore the intersections of storytelling and code.
Last semester, I interned with The Dallas Morning News under the data and applications team where I created a python web scraper for a Trump Tracker as well as coded a d3.js chart on gun homicides in the Dallas area. In the past, I have worked on several publications such as the SMU Campus Weekly, the SMU Hilltopics and The Bear Facts. Through my position as Online Editor on the SMU Campus Weekly, I have experimented with digital publishing and incorporating multimedia with digital stories.
Through my work on these various student publications, I have practiced pitching, writing, gathering sources and publishing stories under tight deadlines. I have also learned how to publish stories and graphics on CMS applications such as WordPress.
