Hello! My name is Bryan Saxton. I am a graduate of the University of Oregon where I received a degree in public relations (and a minor in political science). I have served as the public relations officer for the International Student Association (ISA), but I am every bit as interested in newspaper work as I am public relations work.
I am a self-proclaimed social media addict, and I’m interested in how PR practitioners can use social media sites such as WordPress and Facebook to communicate to large audiences. As part of my duties for ISA, I set up a blogthat tries to keep people up-to-date with our group. It was an excellent medium for communication with people interested in ISA.
After graduation, I spent time as an English teacher in Seoul, South Korea and Ube, Japan. It was a great experience, but I’m looking forward to returning to Journalism, and I am currently seeking a job as a writer at a daily or weekly publication.
