About Nick Escobar

I am Nicholas Escobar, a graduate of The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am from the southern suburbs of Chicago. I worked at The Daily Illini, the independent student newspaper at the university for three years. In my time there I was a reporter, the metro editor, the design editor and a designer.

After Poynter I will be looking for a job as a designer or for something involving multimedia.
