Nick Batty's Home Page [Resume]

Over the last few years I have had valuable experience in the art and craft of journalism. Beginning with my high school newspaper and running through this summer working as an in-depth reporter for my local newspaper,I have immersed myself in journalism. Hell, I even delivered newspapers for a little while. To hotels. At 4 a.m. But you won't find that on my resume.
