About Kevin

If you're interested in hearing more about my journalism experience and its importance in helping you learn English, I'd be happy to talk to you.

But,very briefly, my experience in journalism includes being the editor of my college (Wheaton College) newspaper, where I also produced content for that paper a number of times. And after college, I worked as a freelance writer and photographer.

For several years my main freelance opportunity was with the Chicago Reader, a Chicago weekly. At the Chicago Reader, my main editor, Pat Clinton, dispensed useful tips and tricks and explanations. I also learned from my other editor named Mike Lenahan.

I also signed a contract to work with USA Today, and covered everything from the then-Arkansas governor Bill Clinton to Cher to Nikki6.
