Hi, I'm Taylor. I'm a storyteller, artist, and content creator.

Senior Media and Journalism News major with minors in Screenwriting and Film and Studio Art.

I'd like to work in fields that revolve around editorial, news, or communication and marketing.

Social Media Experience

At Ball State, I was a part of the media team for Cardinal Catholic near campus. I help edit videos (such as the house tour on the right), make graphics for events, and design merchandise (below). I also run the Tik Tok at Digital Corps.

Video Editing

For my News 133 class, I filmed and interviewed my mom for a VOSAT assignment.

Content Strategy

For one of my News classes, I had to make a marketing plan with a group for an existing business including making a content calendar, assessing SWOT goals, analyzing their social media engagement, and setting new goals for their socials. (LEFT)

For my Internship, the other three interns and I devised a social media strategy we'd follow for the summer to promote our various platforms. (RIGHT)

A little bit about me.

My name is Taylor Staples and I'm from Chicago, IL. I'm currently a senior at Ball State University dual majoring in Telecommunications and Journalism both with a concentration in News. I'm also minoring in both Screenwriting and Film and Studio Art.

I love to discuss pop culture, listen to podcasts (I even made one of my own), and deliberate about television and movies. I'm also an avid video game player and try to draw or write as much as possible in my free time.

In my time at Ball State, I've been apart of WCRD 91.3 Radio where I was a writer and anchor for their news show, made graphics for Cardinal Catholic, and I was a content writer, editor and now the co-head of Her Campus Ball State, an online magazine for college women. In addition to these clubs, I work at the Ball State Digital Corps, a student-centered creative IT agency with 6 interdisciplinary teams. I am on the Communications Team. I write scripts, create social media content, write copy, and more.
