Things I wrote for other people: “Me, Myself and the LinkedIn I”

Things I wrote for other people: Blog post for Notre Dame Magazine’s website

“Me, Myself and the LinkedIn I”

For Notre Dame Magazine’s alumni blog.

If Voldemort had used the Internet, I think he would have split his soul into Horcruxes housed in LinkedIn, Tumblr and Pinterest.

I’m not saying social networks are vessels for evil,…

"

But it’s hard to see that place you love so much continue to flourish and evolve after you’re gone. As my life calcifies into an unchanging rhythm of work, sleep, grocery shopping and DVR, another vibrant loop runs through my head: those dammit-so-good “Irish Blessing” commercials ND puts out, with the sweeping aerial shots of campus and the slow-motion students learning about the joys of the world.

When I was a student, I cared about so much: journalism, social justice, football, my faith, friendships. I still care, but being a student makes all of that seem so accessible. Not easy, really, but tangible and exciting. Want to learn something new? A new semester awaits. Want to make 200 friends? Here’s your dorm. Want to raise your heart rate? Here’s a football team that will toy with your emotions, but you’ll love it anyway.

Religion + Rebuilding in New Orleans: In-depth reporting/Quark project

My senior capstone project for Notre Dame’s Minor in Catholic Social Tradition. I received a grant to go to New Orleans and interview Catholic Charities officials, a journalist from the Times-Picayune and parishioners at St. Gabriel the Archangel.

St. Gabe’s was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Katrina but its parishioners and staff helped rebuild the Pontchartrain Park and Gentilly Woods communities.

After writing the copy, I assembled it and my photos into a magazine-like packet using Quark Xpress.

The Elkhart Truth: Jimtown grad writes songs, crunches numbers

For a country singer who croons for a living, Zach DuBois is no romantic when it comes to his career. The Elkhart, Ind., native taught himself to play guitar, but he took a entrepreneurship class at the University of Notre Dame to prepare himself for the competitive business of performing on stage.

One of my turns at the Inside Column, a daily column written by members of the production staff for The Observer.

Thanks November. It’s been surreal
