Welcome to my new website

I've spent the last two days figuring out WordPress.

This is the first post for my new website. I’m making a transition from adjunct journalism and English instructor, which I have been doing since August 2007, to freelance multimedia journalist, which I hope to do far into the future. I’ve been spending a lot of time the last couple days setting up my website, working on business cards, making to-do lists, etc.

In the last week, I’ve stepped down as the Program Director for Evening Eclectic at 90.7 KFSR. I only held the volunteer position for six months, but I had a great time and I feel that I left the position in better shape than it was when I started. I’ll still continue hosting my weekly show on Evening Eclectic, every Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. Pacific.

I’m finishing up my teaching commitments for the spring semester at Fresno City College and at College of the Sequoias in Visalia. I’m tentatively on the books to teach one section of Journ 1 at Fresno City in the fall, but I won’t be returning to COS. I’ve also let my adjunct status lapse at Heald College, where I taught for two quarters last fall. I’m slowly saying so-long to teaching for now. It’s time to move on!

This week, I’m starting as an intern in the Central Valley Bureau of KQED Public Radio, working with the terrific NPR reporter Sasha Khokha. I hope to become a freelance reporter for KQED after the internship is complete. Finally, I’ve started writing again for the local citizen media website FresnoFamous.com, where I’ll be reviewing new local music every other week or so. I previously wrote for the site from 2005-2007.

Lots of other great new developments in the works. Stay tuned!

  1. Hey man!
    Thanks again for turning me on to Leftover Cuties. I checked them out – great music. I don’t know if we can financially entice them to do the show with us at Starline, but I love the tunes & vibe. I noticed our COS connection. I grew up in Visalia & went to COS for a year until my teachers told me I really needed to move to LA to play music. I even had a few that said if I just managed to come to class they would pass me until I finished the year & moved. You’re probably a busy man, but if you ever want to hang & get coffee or something, give me a call. Thanks again for all the great music you turn me onto. It keeps me young 🙂
