ABOUT

A small introduction about my self

Ray Mikell

Political Science Instructor, Content Developer

Welcome to my work and resume site. It is meant to serve as a career and personal branding page, with materials related to my online and classroom instruction, as well as recent digital content work in political science and public policy.

While I primarily work in areas mentioned above, I also have experience in academic research, most of it involving community development. In earlier years, I also worked full time as a print journalist, primarily a reporter, writer, and page editor, but also occasionally putting on my photographer hat. More recently, I have done print and digital content work in the areas of marketing and public relations, photography, and public affairs journalism.

I am based out of Jackson MS.
