The Cavalier Daily is the independent student newspaper at the University of Virginia. From August 2012 until my graduation in December 2015, I was an Arts & Entertainment Writer, submitting nearly fifty features, interviews and reviews, including exclusive interviews with award-winning actor Kevin Spacey and Grammy Award-winning rock band Switchfoot. For my critical ear, I was awarded First Place Critical Writing honors via the Virginia Press Association in April 2014, a competition which placed the CD against other professional state publications.

Music reviews aren’t as prevalent in newspapers these days, so it was refreshing to read these. Well done.

I also served as one of two Senior Arts & Entertainment Editors from January 2014 to December 2015. I helped supervise the work and development of over one hundred undergraduate journalists.
