Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Staff writer / State college reporter

Hired as the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette’s full-time lead state college beat reporter in Aug. 2018 to cover Arkansas State University (Sun Belt Conference), the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (Sun Belt) and the Arkansas Travelers (Double-A, Mariners) in September. I was given autonomy to find interesting, innovative stories and ideas and lead our creative direction in telling said stories. Here, I tuned my efficiency, skill and speed in clean copy and brand-building narrative writing.

Learning a new CMS

All CMS' are different. With each stop in my career journey, I've learned a new one. In Baton Rouge, it was BLOX. In Houston, it was's server. In Arkansas, Ellington. CMS' can be challenging to learn, but they are critical to understand if brands require digital presence (they all do!)

It's the most efficient way to manage content, users, social media, local business services, videos and more in one place.
