The Media School
wrtaylor 'at' indiana 'dot' edu
I grew up in Stockbridge, GA and graduated from Stockbridge High School in 2005. After graduating, I moved to Bloomington, IN to attend Indiana University where I received my B.A. in Telecommunications, Spanish and Linguistics in 2009. I am currently a second year master's student in Telecommunications working towards completing my thesis. As an avid media consumer, my research interests pertain to public opinion and its influence on popular media trends. More specifically, how perceptions of public opinion from critical review aggregators such as rottentomatoes.com may affect the selection and/or experiences of mass audiences with a variety of media content. After finishing my M.A., I hope to work professionally in media consulting in order to gain more practical experience in the media industry. In addition to exercising my mind I also like to stay physically active by playing basketball, tennis and frisbee golf in my spare time.
