 Profile

I am a writer/photographer/videographer for PSA Media Relations. My background includes working for newspaper, radio and in public relations. I have experience in writing, editing, building websites, shooting still shots and shooting video.

 Research Interests

Research interests involve determining how different communities utilize media to communicate, analyzing data to determine patterns of media use based on the message being presented, as well as determining how to effectively communicate a message so that a majority of the communities sending the message, as well as the communities receiving the message, will benefit.

 Extension and Outreach

Part of the first group at the LSU AgCenter to utilize social media to publicize our efforts and engage the community in research efforts involving blueberries, participated in conducting media relations trainings, as well as planning and implementing the first Biofuels Session for Clover College (4-H Short Course).
