My name is Patrick Hoff and I currently a copy editor and page designer for McClatchy's News Desk East. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts in December 2015 with a degree in journalism and a minor in economics. I have reporting experience at The Massachusetts Daily Collegian, where I served as a staff writer, news editor and the managing editor, overseeing a newsroom of approximately 30 editors and 100 writers. I have interned at The Daily Hampshire Gazette, where I wrote feature stories for the health section, and I have also experience writing for Snapmunk, a website focused on news about technology and startups, and I have worked with communications and public relations at the Institute for Community Inclusion, a research institute out of UMass Boston.
