The guys from the new event,
White Rose Thunder, invited the media out Thursday for a flat track racing demonstration at the York Fairgrounds.
I’ve written about the event before, at least twice, so I figured I’d do a video with a QR code for print, since I figured motorcycles whizzing around a dry dirt track has to show up great on camera.

A few weeks ago, I spent some time at York County School of Technology for a story about welding that’s going to print this Sunday.
I hung out in the shop and YDR photographer Jason Plotkin made this video of me trying my hand at the trade and wearing oh-so-chic safety garb.
It really captures my personality, I think.
As an added bonus, the beginning showcases that
awesome intro I wrote about last week.
Welding: It’s not as easy as it looks.

I’ve been doing lots of lighthearted videos lately,
like this one about the ‘search for swag’ — freebies at the county’s business expo.
Many of them come out of things I see while out and about for my

A few months ago, Sunday Editor Scott Blanchard had this idea to make me the
York Daily Record‘s Jeanne Moos, starring in news video spoofs like this one, for example.
At first, I didn’t know who she was.
(I don’t really watch TV. True story.)

From time to time, I keep tabs on this old video of me, a 20-year-old intern at the Patriot-News in Harrisburg.
It was filmed in the summer of 2008 by photographer Michael Fernandez.
It was my father who told me about the infamous hill in Lewisberry, a town in the northern part of York County near Harrisburg where the coverage areas of the York Daily Record and Patriot-News technically overlap.
