Alex Gonzalez, Online Editor/Webmaster

My name is Alex Gonzalez, I’m the Online/Tech Editor and Webmaster here at Lamplighter Media Productions, and this is my second year doing Lamplighter. I was a Staff Reporter last school year and I learned quite a bit about what goes into journalism and making a news publication successful. I learned  about  photography, video editing, article writing, videography, and graphic design. Now, this year I have the opportunity to fine tune my skills and make this program excels by making sure our website is at its finest. I’m really excited for this year and I’m very glad for this opportunity to learn new things!
