I am Executive Director of the Student Voice Project, a non-profit that launches, revives, and supports journalism education programs and student media outlets in underserved schools.
I also teach at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, where I earned my doctorate. Some of the courses that I’ve taught include: COMM 204: Public Speaking, COMM 205: Communication Practicum, and COMM 375: Business and Professional Communication.
