Once you get journalism in your veins, it's not easy to get it out.
I have been focusing my time and energy on photography, and will continue to do just that. As a supplement to that, I will also keep my writing muscles flexed through this blog and a new online local news source, The Creole.
I will join my friend and former editor, Charlotte Guedry, in this exciting venture. Charlotte and I previously worked together for The Gonzales Weekly Citizen.
During our time together at the newspaper, we saw the transition from print to online occur at a blistering pace. We saw mandates to post more and more to the web, Facebook and Twitter. This was back around 2009. Just look around at how much our lives have changed over the last few years.
With that being said, it makes sense to hitch a ride on this bandwagon.
It will be exciting to have my finger on the pulse of the community again. I will have a hand in everything going on in the area, from news to features to sports.
