The last two weeks have been a lot of fun, as I've worked on a huge variety of stories for The Andovers Magazine.
The top honor was when the editor assigned me the cover story, which another journalist was unable to complete. I completed a profile on Steve "Dino" D'Onofrio, the director of photography for This Old House. I will admit that although I've heard of the show (of course), I hadn't watched an episode until last week. The show was great, but Dino was even better. I expected his expertise, but I was really blown away by his dedication to community, and his passion for community access television. In the digital, telephone age, it was also a rare treat to sit down for an in-person interview.
In addition to the profile, I did a few other light stories for the magazine. One of my favorites was about a literacy program where children read to dogs - and see massive benefits. This story ran in The Sunday Tribune this week, and it was an honor to have the organizers or the program write me to say how well I captured their purpose.
It may not be spring time quite yet, but spring fever is certainly setting in. Although temperatures are still low, things have been heating up at Burch Creative. The last two weeks have very busy with newspaper reporting, and beginning work on a couple magazine projects.
I stepped outside my comfort zone by covering boy's basketball playoffs for the Newburyport Daily News. The Eagle Tribune also kept me busy with stories ranging from Women's history month lectures to maple sugaring tours.
All in all getting out, meeting new people, and reporting on great events have been awesome ways to make that final winter push. Do you know of any events coming up in New England, or have a story idea? Get in touch!
