About

NDeSantis-profilepicHi, I’m Nick. I’m a hard-working music, film and comedy fanatic with a strong passion for feature writing and visual storytelling. Whether it be through words, infographics or digital video, I am always looking to create compelling and engaging content that can best convey a story.

After a decade of working as a graphic designer in a marketing and branding capacity for industries ranging from entertainment to gourmet food service, I decided to embark on a career as a multimedia journalist. I recently completed an intensive but fruitful year pursuing a graduate degree in Arts Journalism in Syracuse University’s S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. In that time, I served as a lead producer for The Newshouse and contributed features, breaking news, reviews, design, infographics and video to a variety of publications and websites.

You can find clips and other content of mine at MTV.com, NextMovie, Film.com, The Post and Courier, Syracuse New Times, The Newshouse, Green Room Reviews and more.
