My name is William Barney and I was born in Miami, FL. I graduated from Florida International University in April 2013, with a Bachelor's degree in Communications. I recently finished a communications internship with Best Buddies International, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating friendships between people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). I was one of the contributing editors for the 25th Anniversary Best Buddies book, which commemorates the supporters and members of the Best Buddies organization. I also contributed in their media outreach efforts.
The skills I bring to the table are drafting press releases, building and updating media lists, monitoring television and radio clips through Critical Mention, pulling press clips from Cision and organizing press kits.
