Multifaceted Media Chick

Madison M. Moore

I'm not your average writer and media guru.

I write, design, shoot and edit. I believe everyone has a story.

I am confident that I am the person to tell those stories.

Along SEPTA's Lansdale/Doylestown line, things are heating up

A new addition is coming soon to the eateries that have sprouted by the tracks of the Lansdale/Doylestown SEPTA regional rail line in recent years. At one end of the line, you might say, are a pair of cafes serving commuters at the start and end of their days. At the other end, a restaurant is rising from the ashes in Glenside and a long-dormant restaurant space along the rails in Jenkintown is in rehab.

Montco man follows in grandfather’s footsteps, one photo at a time

A freelance photographer from Montgomery County is keeping his grandfather's memory alive by traveling the United States in his footsteps – and taking pictures of the same places he did decades ago. Christian Carollo, a 33-year-old Telford resident, found that cherishing his grandfather’s travel photographs was not enough to remember the man and prolific traveler, Herb Connellan, who died at the age of 87 in 2008.

Roadside memorials: a place to grieve or safety concern?

Exactly 4,800 daffodils planted in the shape of a heart bloom along the Route 611 bypass in Doylestown, Bucks County, where nine-year-old Holly Huynh was killed in a horrific, high-speed crash caused by two racing cars on the eve of last Thanksgiving. About seven miles away in Hatfield, an array of balloons, flowers, and a photograph of 15-year-old Dennis Kee sits in the overgrown grass off the shoulder of Route 309 near Mill Road.

For some colleges, 'Red Zone' highlights dangerous time for freshman girls

It’s college acceptance season, when high school seniors find out which schools have invited them to study on their campus.

Burlesque dancing 'cat lady' finds another life creating toys

Randi Warhol, 26, sometimes notices cats following her home. But these are not your typical egg rolls; rather, they’re fabric replicas filled with organic catnip – just one of the many products from Warhol’s own cat toy company, Polydactyl Cats. The Delaware County resident, who happens to be a part-time Burlesque dancer and model, owns and operates the toy business in her home.

With 59 great-grandkids and counting, matriarch Peggy Koller still going strong

It might not be unusual that Peggy Koller is living a full, active life into her 90s. But she might be considered out of the ordinary when it comes to family. The 91-year-old Blue Bell resident has grandchildren by the dozens: 56 in all. They are, of course, from her own 11 offspring - so her children had an average of five children each.

Teacher's avocation: Crafting surfboards

School let out for the summer Thursday in Cherry Hill, and middle school teacher Luke Alvarez made the usual 50-mile trek to his home in Ocean County. But unlike a lot of teachers, he'll take almost no summer break. Instead, he'll be hunched over in his home shop with the tools he'll use to shape and sand, shape and sand, over and over until he gets it just right.

Gym’s command for pets: Heal!

It’s exercise time at Whole Animal Gym (WAG) in Queen Village, and jumping up onto the equipment is a yellow Labrador retriever, ready for her weekly workout. But Lucy’s workout includes an unconventional routine -- hydrotherapy, which utilizes an underwater treadmill and occasionally, a squirt of Easy Cheese as a motivational treat.

Live-action gamers find outlets here and elsewhere

In an age of busy schedules and technology, sometimes people just need an outlet to escape reality. Some like to go to the beach; others unwind with a good book. Then there are those who are drawn to a world of medieval games, elves, aliens, and possibly superheroes and super-villains. They fight mythical creatures and defend the realm or strive to protect humanity as it falls into dystopia.

About

Madison M. Moore

My passion is writing and all things media. As a young professional, I have been able to see the transition from traditional media to this new, fresh, digital era we have entered.

Some of my work includes writing for print newspapers, producing content for online news organizations, writing profiles and press releases to strengthen a brand strategy, and serving as a social media coordinator for numerous organizations.

If I've learned one thing from the world of media and communication, it's that there is always a story to tell. With my skill sets I'm always ready for a new story, but along the way I've learned to adapt to the company/ client/organization in order to produce the best work possible.

Really, I'm just one multifaceted media chick.

Please review my clips in my Pressfolio, visit me on LinkedIn or contact me personally for more examples of my work.
