In general, I have no idea what I’m doing.
Like what I’m doing? Buy me a coffee:
H. Jad Rea
Writer of fiction, nonfiction, poetry. Avid crossworder. Right-handed. Has never successfully done a cartwheel. Said “merci” to a server in a German restaurant in 2010 and is still embarrassed about it.
I’m slowly making my way through life doing my best at a little bit of everything. So far, I’ve been a
Bag Runner // Bookseller // Busboy // Cashier // Cinema Usher // Copy Editor // Data Analyst // Dishwasher // Envelope Stuffer // Floor Stocker // Hostess // Museum Programmer // Reporter // Social Media Manager // Sound Technician // Stage Manager // Ticket Seller // Waiter // Writer
I’ve written NEWS for radio (WIUX) and newspaper (Indiana Daily Student) and LIFESTYLE pieces for blog (the Tab) and magazine (Inside Magazine). Until May 2019, I ran the blog and social media for the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology in Bloomington, IN.
Now, I’m working with Democracy Films on a series of documentaries about the overlooked history of the American Midwest.
Double major in history and journalism from Indiana University (Go Hoosiers). Minors in marketing and Spanish. I’m a native of southern Indiana, so I can be relied upon to occasionally spout Midwest-centric wisdom.
Conversational fluency in Spanish, basic knowledge of ASL.
Working knowledge of graphic design, and editing video and audio.
Fan of twentieth-century literature. And nineteenth-century literature. Literature in general. Near-encyclopedic knowledge of random ‘Star Trek’ facts.
