When he’s not running around like a headless chicken, he enjoys snapping pictures, vibing to oldies, hanging with friends and drinking way too much caffeine — you know, like a procrastinator. You can send him story ideas at photo@theaq.net.

 

 

Video Producer — Jacob Moore

Jacob Moore is a third-year journalism and great books student. He recently found a passion for video news stories in his classes at St. Thomas University, so he is excited to have the chance to work with The Aquinian as video producer. To him, the best part of journalism is finding incredible stories from seemingly ordinary people. Everyone has a story, but the more absurd and outlandish, the better. When he isn’t hunting for stories, he’s writing them — or laugh-crying at a great satirical novel. He always wants to meet new people and learn about their crazy lives, so don’t hesitate to contact him at video@theaq.net.

His podcasting experience will come in handy this year as The Aquinian’s first radio producer. He’s passionate about music, technology and sports, specifically basketball, football and recently, Formula 1 racing. You can contact Jewett via email at radio@theaq.net.
