About me:

My name is Max Kalnitz and I am a student at The University At Buffalo studying English with a focus in journalism and a minor in Japanese. I’m set to graduate in the fall of 2018 and plan on pursuing my masters in journalism at Syracuse University. I can see myself reporting in Buffalo or NYC, or possibly moving to Japan to pursue foreign reporting. Regardless, reporting is in my future. In addition to school, I serve as the senior features editor of The Spectrum, The University At Buffalo’s award-winning student publication. I am also one of two 2018 spring newsroom interns at Buffalo’s NPR station WBFO. I have a soft spot for concert reviews and profiles, but I love a good breaking news story. I am a world traveler, most recently summiting the tops of Mt. Fuji in Japan and Yellowstone’s Mt. Washburn this past summer. I love hiking, running, drumming and rocking to RUSH with my windows down. I also speak near-fluent Japanese and will always be down to grab a bowl of ramen.

About this blog:

On my website, I want to portray my life through my articles and share with viewers what I’m currently up to, clips I’ve been working on, and plans for the future. As I am traveling more, I am trying to incorporate more photojournalism and multimedia into my blog. Expect to see weekly blog updates for my upcoming European trip this winter.

Awards:

Greater Buffalo SPJ Scholarship Award (2017)

Rosalind Jarrett Sepulveda Journalism Education Award (2017)
