"That self knew little more of journalism than the box scores in my morning paper. But then I showed up at Santa Clara, and was welcomed into the Communication Department by professors across all disciplines. Things started firing. Lessons in public speaking got me comfortable on my feet, in front of a room. A foray into visual storytelling prepared me for video's eventual role in digital journalism. Research methods, reporting, writing – the building blocks started to stack up.
"Late in my time there, I started to crave a chance to use them somewhere beyond the wide avenues and strip malls of my cloistered suburban youth. Chicago, DC, Cleveland, Denver, Kansas City, Dallas: Those building blocks are well traveled now. And at every stop, I've drawn on my experience at Santa Clara, in the classrooms, the halls, the basement of Benson and beyond."
