Alaska & The Arctic

From May through August 2015, I lived and worked in southern Alaska while doing research for my MA at the Missouri School of Journalism. I contributed original features and news to several outlets, and continue to say tuned into happenings in Alaska and the Arctic.

My research was focused on how regional news organizations can better utilize the Internet to grow their audiences in outlying, geographically isolated communities. The results of this research are available by request.
