a bit about me:
My name is Alex. I’m a journalist and recent graduate from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where I majored in communication studies with a concentration in mass media and a double minor in journalism and English.
Throughout high school, I developed a passion for photographing, interviewing and writing people’s stories as an editor on yearbook and newspaper. When I started college, I joined the Niner Times, the student-run newspaper of UNC Charlotte. By sophomore year, I took on the role of news editor and was promoted to community editor my senior year.
My work has appeared in multiple publications, including Charlotte magazine, Charlotte Business Journal, Creative Loafing, The Gaston Gazette, The Shelby Star and The State Port Pilot.
