My name is Alek.
I am a senior at Utah State University studying journalism and communication, with minors in computer science, music and yoga.
I am passionate about all things digital (and Slurpees). Whether it's video, audio, or written articles, I love it all. My first foray into the mass media field began when I was nine years old, when I began writing, editing and publishing my own monthly newspaper, The Nelson Newspaper (creative title, I know). Shortly thereafter, I taught myself to use Windows Movie Maker and started making movies with my siblings and dog.
I have come a long way since then. I am the managing editor for The Utah Statesman, the student-run paper at Utah State University. I have also worked as a writer and copy editor there and have interned at KSL Newsradio, where I had opportunities to produce a radio show and write articles for their website. I have experience creating content using Adobe Creative Cloud and Microsoft Office. I also have HTML, C++, Python and Java programming experience.
