Brian Hooks, 21, is a recent graduate of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism. His undergraduate focus was in print journalism, but he also worked at the campus television station and built a multimedia blog on nonprofit media organizations and other experimental methods of approaching the floundering newspaper market. Along with publishing numerous print stories in the greater D.C. area, he has also been active in the Society of Professional Journalists and the International Center for Media and the Public Agenda, out of Salzburg, Austria. His other interests are playing the drums, singing, listening to music, watching football and baseball, beaching and humor –extra dry. If his journalism career progresses, he hopes to be a documentary journalist and writer for National Geographic or the Discovery Channel. Otherwise, he will continue publishing stories and hopes to eventually go to grad school for creative writing. Hooks can be reached at brian.hooks@news21.com.
