My name is Joshua DeGrasse-Baumann. I am a writer from Milwaukee, WI.
My writing background is pretty diverse. I spent several years editing both my campus newspaper and literary magazine, but I also write for a video game news website and dabble creatively. I have written for broadcast and I constantly write for the web.
I graduated from Carroll University in 2014 with a Communications-Journalism major and an English minor, but quickly set my sights on other types of writing.
While at Carroll, I held executive-level positions in a number of organizations. As mentioned earlier, I was the editor of my campus literary magazine, Century for four years. I also spent some time as the sports editor and, eventually, editor-in-chief, of The New Perspective, Carroll’s student newspaper.
My time with the paper also led to the campus radio station recruiting me as their news and sports director, a role I held for four years. During that time, I also assumed the role of FCC coordinator and, unofficially, assistant station manager.
Some of my other experience includes:
- Reviewing games and covering video game news for Power Up Gaming
- Reviewing indie video games for Clearance Bin Review
- Writing sports parody for Off Base Percentage
- Interning for Carroll’s Athletic Communications Department
