January 2010 - Present (3 years 11 months)
I write gaming news, reviews and other articles about games and gaming culture for the site. Yeah, most of the time it's just rewriting press releases, but sometimes I attend online demos or conventions as well as research and write my own stuff. It's great.
My investigative article "Do you want to be my PlayDate? Undercover at GameCrush" was featured on Kotaku on February 24, 2011 and on The Escapist on February 25, 2011.

Staff Writer, Layout Editor, Editor-in-Chief
Agnes Scott College, The Profile
August 2005 - December 2008 (3 years 4 months)
Let's see. As a staff writer, I interviewed a lot of people and wrote a lot of feature pieces. As the layout editor, I still wrote and interviewed, but I also laid out pages for the paper, some of which I'm pretty proud of. And then, I was the main editor. I was still laying out pages from time to time, but I was also copyediting, hiring staff, assigning articles, writing articles, working with the College's administration, working with advertisers in the Atlanta area and also trying to get sleep. The latter didn't work out too often.
