Why a digital portfolio?

Hi there. My name is Ashli. You’ve found my online work portfolio. But — hey, psst — you can find the latest headlines on kiro7.com and our social platforms!

 

I love working in Seattle. The political landscape, city’s emerging marijuana industry, and tech boom  provides endless questions for a curious journalist. The Seattle market’s thirst for fast news on mobile devices puts me in a great position deliver as digital producer, especially when it comes to breaking news on social media and our digital platforms.

And it’s just beautiful here, as seen in this 360 photo I took for KIRO 7 News at the top of the Space Needle!

So why is this portfolio available? This website started for resume work when I graduated in 2012 from college. Now, I use it to share my work for fellowships and conferences. So, if you’re looking for some specific samples or a resume from me, then you’re in the right place.
As for a personal introduction: I am a semi-recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest, living and producing news in Seattle for KIRO 7 News. My hometown is the 901, AKA Memphis, Tennessee. Go Grizzlies. Feel free to connect with me on Twitter: @AshliKIRO7!
