Hi, I’m Ray Howze, a part-time journalist and ski instructor currently living in Salt Lake City, Utah.
I graduated from the University of Missouri with Bachelors degrees in Journalism and Spanish in December 2013. Since then, I’ve spent time covering the Army at Fort Campbell, Ky., for the Leaf-Chronicle in Clarksville, Tenn., city and county government and development in Williamson County for the Tennessean and a variety of topics for City Weekly in Salt Lake.
This previous winter, I decided to learn some new skills teaching others how to ski. I became a certified ski instructor at Park City Mountain Resort and learned valuable communication and education skills that can be used in a variety of careers.
This summer, I was set to work as a project supervisor in Panama with the nonprofit organization Amigos de las Americas. Amigos is a summer immersion program for high school-aged kids from around the country. I currently serve as president for the Salt Lake City chapter.
However, because of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, these projects were canceled, leaving me to figure out what to do instead. In addition, my time as a ski instructor was abruptly cut one month short and my planned time to leave City Weekly had already taken place. Now, I’m looking to apply for jobs at companies I originally planned to consider in August. I hope you take the time to consider my application and content.
While exploring this site, you will find links (and .pdfs) to clips, as well as page designs and my résumé.
Thanks for visiting.
