    I currently work as page designer for a newspaper company in the greater Boston area. I work 5 p.m.-1 a.m. Saturday through Wednesday. I am a skilled young designer with a lot of potential. As happy as I am with my day job, I have a great desire to use my other skills as a writer and copy editor. I have the time and enthusiasm to seize some freelance opportunities. I am prepared to use my well-honed writing and editing skills to assist an online or print publication. I majored in journalism at Marist College. I was involved with the student newspaper all four years, rising from contributing writer to staff writer to copy editor to news section editor. Although the newspaper was my focus, I also had two publishing internships and contributed to other on-campus publications. In addition, I created a blog and online portfolio for my senior capping project. In October 2012 I began a job as a copy editor/page designer at a Louisiana newspaper called The American Press. I left in March 2014 to pursue design at a larger, more diverse company. The company I am currently with (please ask for details) publishes four daily newspapers, four weeklies and several magazines. I have worked with all four dailies and three of the weeklies, and have designed two magazine spreads. Since I discovered design late in the game during college, I have a plethora of other skills, most prominent of which is copy editing.  less
