As a board member of the Society of Professional Journalists Florida Pro Chapter and chair of the student programming committee, I’ve run and hosted hands-on events geared at teaching students journalistic skills in fun, interactive settings. These events have been held at individual universities, high school campuses and college media conventions.

Zombie Stories


Teaching students interviewing skills by having them chat up the undead. More information.



Is the term “Islamic terrorist” accurate or offensive? An open discussion between Muslim community leaders and the journalists who cover them, over a Halal lunch. More information.

First Amendment Free Food Festival


A national event where students sign away their rights for an hour in exchange for a free meal.

Midnight Snack


A student publication shouldn’t have to pay for a critique. Students and pros mingle over a late night breakfast and talk all things journalism at this free event.
