Bringing Romney to Australia

I was recently asked by a former professor at the University of Sydney to join in writing for her new independent online news forum: MegaphoneOZ. So far it has been a wonderful opportunity for me to harp on my hobbies of press writing and social media,  not to mention to keep close ties with the incredible people of Australia.

My colleague and editor, Pam Walker, began her online community just in the last few months. With unpaid journalists, her innovative media outlet provides a place for honest lovers of the written word to submit news stories from downtown Sydney across the world to Phoenix.

As the US Contributor, I have been asked to write my first piece on Romney, his LDS faith, and what it means for Mormon voters. Being a Mormon myself, it was exciting to write about all the media discussion surrounding the LDS Church, especially for a country who knows less about it. US journalists are calling it “the Mormon Moment” and with Mitt Romney running for US president, that momentum goes far beyond our country’s borders. I think the placement of my article suggests just that.

To catch a glance at the article, just click on the image of Romney in this post. I’ve also been added to the list of contributors on the MegaphoneOZ “About Us” page, here.
