It’s pretty strange for me to see my own name attached to a news story that I’ve had very little or pretty much nothing to do with.
The magazine that I work for, Boom, released its prison issue not too long ago. There’s going to be an event held on September 26 in the Fullerton Arboretum to celebrate and discuss the ideas that are inside. A panel of speakers will be talking about prisons in California and prisoner reform for a few hours that night, and I’ll be bringing a reporter and photographer there from the Daily Titan to cover it. I would write about it for the newspaper myself, but it could arguably be seen as a conflict of interest to write about a group that’s paying me.
The reason I bring up this event is because an article was published on the Cal State Fullerton News Center talking to the magazine’s editor Jason Sexton about the magazine and what will be happening on Monday. While I wasn’t personally interviewed for the story that was written, I did get my picture taken along with everyone else working on the magazine at CSUF.
Granted, it took two tries on two separate days to get a proper picture done, but it wound up being a pretty sweet picture in the end if you ask me.
Check out the story here if you want, it’s a nicely done article and I think I look pretty good in the group shot, so I figured it would be worth sharing.
