Introducing the Author

My name is Daniel J. Gross and I am currently a sophomore at Towson university, majoring in Journalism and New Media. My passion lies in writing and reporting the news, as well as so many other aspects in journalism and electronic media and film.

I currently am the co-owner of Change Of Scene Productions, a medi production company in Southern Maryland ( In this company, my business partner and I manage a company website, shoot video documentaries, shoot wedding videos, create photo slideshows, are outsourced to for logo design or animation, and do so much more in the field of media production.

When not attending classes during the academic school year, I also work full time for Southern Maryland's number one online news source, ( Here, I write stories, report the news, conduct interviews, take photos, upload stories, edit copy, manage sections of the site's backend and serve as a sales associate, selling online banner advertisement.

While at Towson University, I spend most of my time working and writing for The Towerlight, the number one college newspaper in Baltimore ( I am currently on staff as a staff writer, writing at least one story per issue. I also serve as the Student Government Association beat writer. 

I also am on a University Residence Government building council as the building secretary, where I promote events, document different things, and do advertising. I take many courses to better my knowledge in the journalism field and hope to soon be interning for a major newspaper or news network.

I am very eager to continue my professional career into a more mainstream assocaition to gain a greater recognition. I am looking forward to continuing my education at Towson to better my skills.

Feel free to contact me for any information.

Hi Daniel,
It sounds like you keep yourself very busy! I'm glad you're writing for the Towerlight. It's one of the best ways to improve your writing and reporting skills. Make sure you copyedit for typos/spelling errors!
