Hello! My name is John Buday
My parents are writers and a major reason I began writing. I have over five years of experience writing news and feature stories for my community and college papers. While I graduated the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 2021 with a journalism degree, I consider myself a storyteller, not just a journalist.
Growing up, I would write comic strips and play make believe with my friends, crafting wild stories. I also got into music and the performing arts at a young age, picking up the trombone and participating in a number of plays and musicals throughout middle school and high school. I play video games and take pride in my love of Dungeons & Dragons, where roleplaying as fictional characters is encouraged. Through those activities, I have found not only my sense of self-confidence, but my confidence to craft stories.
More recently, I’ve immersed myself in video projects and podcasts. In addition to my journalism degree, I earned a certificate in film studies. The breadth of my major video and podcasting work can be found in my resume.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions or are looking for someone to edit your podcast. I would also be glad to discuss arrangements for the latter!
