Hello All!

I'm Donald Griffin, a multimedia journalist and producer from White Oak, Texas. In December 2017, I earned my B.A. in Journalism at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.

Most recently, I was a literary assistant at Dupree/Miller & Associates in Dallas. I assisted the head of the television/film division, Lacy Lynch.

In fall 2016, I was the Multimedia Intern in the Dracopoulos iDeas Lab at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington D.C. Primarily, my work deals with audio, photo, and video editing/production for many of the programs at CSIS.

In summer 2016, I was the Editorial Intern for TCU Magazine, the university magazine, as well as Endeavors, the faculty research magazine.

From May 2015 to May 2016, I served as the Managing Editor of TCU 360, the digital-first student news website at TCU. I also worked at the Design Editor for the student magazine, IMAGE.

I've served as the Editor-in-Chief and Design Editor of TCU's newspaper, Skiff x 360. Prior, I worked as a Designer for the Skiff as well. 

My journalism background has a heavy emphasis in print. I have experience with in newspaper print (broadsheet and tabloid), news-magazine (long-tabloid) and magazine print. At the collegiate level, my focus has been layout design. I began in my first semester as a designer for the Skiff x 360 and took on the role of design editor in my second semester. I also began working with Image magazine in my second semester as well.

I began at White Oak High School as the assistant editor of the tabloid newspaper, Gauger. My senior year, we transitioned to broadsheet, and I served as the editor-in-chief. I also served as the advertisement editor for our yearbook, Roughneck.

Outside of journalism, my interests include playing volleyball, spending time with my family, and competitive speech and debate. I played on the TCU men’s club volleyball team and competed for TCU's competitive speech and debate team, TCU Forensics.
