From an interview on journalist mental health to starting a student-centered journalism program in North Florida - learn more about what I do below.

I spoke with Education Writers Association's Public Editor, Kavitha Cardoza, about journalist mental health and the challenges of burnout. As a journalist who has experienced burnout, I spoke with Kavitha about finding a path through to recovery and the joy found on the other side. (Phot by Jimmy Minichello)

I moderated a discussion with Orion magazine's Amy Brady (author of Ice: From Mixed Drinks to Skating Rinks -- A Cool History of a Hot Commodity), author Alexandra Kleeman (Something New Under the Sun), and Florida Student News Watch member Annamarie Simoldoni on the biodiversities of our lives, the presence of climate change and the practical hope we can find.

Started in January 2020 before COVID shuttered the state, I run a student-centered journalism program based in North Florida. The goal is for students to learn more about the craft and rigor of professional journalism and to practice their reporting skills. Students are published either in partner news organizations or on the Student News Watch website.
