Senior Internship

During my internship at Void Magazine, I worked closely with Editor-in-Chief Matt Shaw to write articles that highlighted local musicians, surfers, and restaurants in the First Coast and Jacksonville Beaches areas. I independently sourced, pitched, interviewed subjects, wrote articles and composed videos for online publication. I also wrote an article that was published in the March issue of Void Magazine.

In addition to writing articles, some of my duties during my internship included capturing photos and videos of events related to my personal articles as well as company features. I assisted in filming a soon to be released Void Office Music Series featuring several local and regional musicians. I also created a multimedia blog series chronicling a DIY surfboard build.

Void Magazine published my article, “Fishing for a Complement,” on page 32 of March’s Bold Bites issue.
