My name is Mack Veltman, and I was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon. I am currently a junior at the University of Oregon, where I am majoring in journalism and communications and public relations.
I have always been interested in popular culture and how television and movies play a huge role in our society. They reflect the current social trends and values, and they tell stories that inspire and bring their characters to life. I want to use this blog to explore the impact that pop culture continues to play in our lives, and take an in depth look at hit television shows, movies, comic books, and video games that have dominated our screens and inspired countless of trends.
Outside of school, for the past two years, I have worked at a childcare on my college campus. I mostly work with the older children, and it’s always interesting coming in to talk with the kids about new movies and televisions shows and what they see in the media. The kids are very intelligent, and I’ve seen how they are influenced by what they see on television and how the media has led them to form their own ideas and opinions.
I have also worked in the customer service sector, which has helped me learn how to talk with different types of people, a skill which is imperative for anyone in the journalism field.
I am active on several social media platforms. If you ever have any questions or comments, feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
