My Career Goals: James would like to work on a copy desk at a publication with a very strong Web presence, be it a newspaper, magazine or other media. He’d like a chance to use all the services the Web has to offer in his work while continuing to proofread and write headlines.

Other Interests: James enjoys writing and reading poetry, role-playing games, and
 the outdoors. He is an assistant scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 383 in East Moline, Ill., where he
 earned the rank of Eagle Scout in May 2003, and is a member of the Silvis Optimist Club.
