Objectives Ultimately, my greatest interest is in the human element behind every story. My English skills, ethical principles and demanding grammatical standards have garnered me praise as an editor, and I enjoy the opportunity to work closely with other writers. However, my dream job is one in which I am still able to find and write stories, even if only periodically. Experience Reporter and Editor Nov. 2009 – Sept. 2010, United States Division-South, Camp Basra, Iraq - Reporting on and photographing various events around the south of Iraq involving U.S. and Iraqi entities, including military, governmental and civilian, and the interaction of those involved. - Editing all content produced by the U.S. military in southern Iraq from Nov. 2009 – Jun. 2010, both photographic and written, as well as coaching reporters both in-office and at a distance. - Maintained a “virtual office” environment, with all tracking and communication carried out through intranet and Internet, including development of a Google Apps environment to adapt to needs of reporters and consumers. - Creation from scratch of the multi-section template for the 1st Infantry Division’s field newspaper, the “Danger Forward”, with a 24-hour turnaround from assignment to completion. - Mentoring of layout editor, who had no previous experience in layout, including complete training in the use of Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, while maintaining regular workload as editor. - Mentoring and training new reporters/photographers who had little or no previous journalism experience. - Developing and implementing standards for submissions and releases, including handling of photos and captions. - As a subject matter expert, advised on the implementation of online engagement of potential audiences, including Facebook, Twitter and website design. - While editor, continued normal work in that capacity even while on story assignments to other locations around Iraq, keeping contact by whatever Internet connection could be found. - Received formal and informal recognition from supervisors, as well as from writers and subjects of stories, for maintaining the writers’ voices and careful adherence to journalistic principles. - Was recommended for Meritorious Service Medal by immediate command for these and other accomplishments, which was upgraded by the division commander to a Bronze Star.

Public Affairs Specialist and Combat Journalist May 2002 – Nov. 2005, 367th MPAD, Yearling Rd., Columbus, Ohio - After completion of training at the Defense Information School, Fort Meade, Md., was sent on a two-week training event as the only print journalist, and, with no real world experience, carried the workload of a full three-person team. - Deployed to Kuwait and Iraq from April 2003 to April 2004, maintaining a fairly independent presence while working as a combat journalist with both Marine and U.S. Army elements. - Had articles and photographs published in many civilian newspapers and such sites as GlobalSecurity.org, as well as having his articles cited by civilian journalists. - Was awarded the Army Commendation Medal by recommendation of the 4th Infantry Division, along with the rest of his 20-person unit, for assisting civilian media during and after the capture of Saddam Hussein.
