The Little Hawk

Joseph Cress
No one ever told me whether or not I should write a bio or not, so yeah. I'm writing a bio now! That was exciting. I'm Joe, this is my first year on The Little Hawk but my second year in the journalism program at City. I started out my junior year in foundations and really got hooked, I intended on jumping onto the paper's staff last year but there was a very large need for help on the yearbook staff.

By the end of the year I had worked my way up to editor and am now doing double duty working for both publications. Most of my work thus far has been photography based and I'm really enjoying satisfaction associated with learning to take better photos while also getting to meet professional photographers.

I've found I really enjoy reporting on games more than just attending as a spectator and look forward to reporting on more types of events in the future.
