John V. Lynn '83 Memorial Scholarship for Excellence in Journalism

2010 - Student Journalism
This award is for an undergraduate who excels in journalistic activity on campus. I received it for my work as News Director and later Station Manager of SUNY Geneseo's 89.3 WGSU.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

I'm actually in the process of repairing a 1930s-era Royal.

What's the funniest news-related #hashtag you've seen?

#PewPew. Thanks, @NASA!

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

Always e-mail. It helps me sort pitches into folders and keep a record of conversations.

Native Apps Not Coming Until Later This Year — The Apple Watch, Apple's first foray in into the wearable world, is already one of the best smartwatches on the market. But there's one big thing holding it back. When you get the Apple Watch, you'll find it preloaded with a suite of full-powered, Apple-made apps - Messages, Mail, Calendar and more.

Best Apps to Download on Release Day — The Apple Watch is set to ship today, and assuming you're one of the lucky buyers actually getting their new wearable sometime soon, you're probably on the hunt for some new apps. While truly native third party Apple Watch apps aren't coming until later this year, there are plenty of Apple Watch apps worth downloading right away.

Facebook Hello Shows You Callers' Faces, Info — Facebook's newest attempt to infiltrate your daily smartphone use comes in the form of Hello, an app that displays your Facebook contacts' information on your device's screen when they call you. Facebook is pitching the Android-only app as a way to make boring old phone calls a little bit smarter.

Star Wars' BB-8 Rolling Droid Will Be a Real Toy — BB-8, the newest droid in the Star Wars universe, is not only real, it's also coming to your living room. Sphero, a Boulder, Colorado-based company that makes smartphone-controlled spheres, confirmed Monday it made the bi-spherical rolling robot for December's Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Watch the Trailer Here

Apple Offering Classes to Learn How Apple Watch Works — Some Apple Store locations will be offering workshops to teach new and prospective Apple Watch owners how their new device works.

Most Important Scenes — Star Wars Trailer The second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens dropped Thursday afternoon. Here are five things that stand out (spoilers!): 1. That voiceover is Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, apparently telling his offspring about The Force.

Jawbone UP4 Packs Mobile Payments via American Express — Ever get a craving for a protein shake at the gym only to realize you left your wallet at the office? Jawbone's newest fitness tracker, the UP4, has you covered. Jawbone's UP4 fitness tracker syncs up with your American Express card and uses Near-Field Communication (NFC) to let you make purchases via the device, no wallet needed.

What the Buying Process Is Like — I just bought an Apple Watch. Please don't tell my fiancé. I was pretty sure I wanted an Apple Watch before the presale period began way too early this morning. But I couldn't justify spending a few hundred bucks on A Very Nice Thing before getting some hands-on time with it, checking out the bands, figuring out what size I should buy and so on.
