Whitney is a writer, programmer and all-around multimedia storyteller with a passion for local, community-driven stories. She received a bachelor's in multimedia journalism and Spanish from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2011, where she was also able to experience the glorious life of a theater technician, travel through South America and learn to make balloon animals. She's probably forgotten that last one by now, though if put under pressure might be able to produce a dog without popping the balloon. Her passion lies in navigating the intersection of traditional storytelling and new media. Her varied interests include sustainable agriculture, local food movements, environment, travel, local government, video games, comedy and music. In her spare time, she writes and performs comedy.
