I am a 2008 University of Wisconsin Oshkosh journalism graduate with bylines in dailies, weeklies, bi-weeklies, volleyball magazine and as the national columnist at D3baseball.com. Besides my writing background, I also have experience with Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Photoshop, etc.), the Presto Sports interface, copy editing and managing a staff. My career goal is to become a sports information director.
This blog started as part of a journalism class project that included a website [now defunct, thanks to the powers that be] dedicated to the 2007 UW Oshkosh women’s volleyball team. The site featured Flash, Dreamweaver, HTML and other bells and whistles. The continuation of this blog after the original site’s cessation reflects my interest in volleyball and in sports writing.
Here are four videos I and a partner shot, edited and produced in 2007. Alas, some of our better videos were only housed on our site and not YouTube.
UW Oshkosh vs. UW-Whitewater
UW Oshkosh vs. UW-Stevens Point
UW Oshkosh vs. MSOE
UW Oshkosh vs. Lakeland
UPDATE: Curse this journalism job market! I, Ricky Nelson (firstname.lastname@example.org), would appreciate a paying sports journalism or SID job, if you have one to offer. In the meantime I’ll continue to update the blog and watch volleyball.
