“Our Las Vegas” is honored to collaborate with students in Professor Mary Hausch‘s UNLV Hank Greenspun School of Journalism & Media Studies Advanced Reporting and Writing classes.
On February 13, 2014, we debuted a new feature, “Las Vegas Creatives,” with a profile by Crystal Mae Muguerza of Kristin Bartolo, the owner of the legendary Dino’s Lounge. Our second profile of writer | teacher Lissa Townsend Rodgers was added by Cassandra Taloma. For our third profile, Brianna Vargas contributed a profile of dance instructor Richard Havey. Rosalie Spear added a profile of activist Michelle Marchese. Jordan Tran and Diana Perez join the ranks with ones on Ralph Mathieu and Leandro Mena.
After a two-year hiatus, a profile of 22 year-old jazz musician and singer Peter LaCasia by Jacob Lasky relaunches the project.
Our heartfelt thanks to these budding journalists – and to their professor!
