My name is Camden Jones. I am a freelance reporter based in the Chicago area. I am a graduate of the Missouri School of Journalism with an emphasis in convergence news reporting. I grew up in Wheaton, IL. I first fell in love with the idea of becoming a journalist when I started listening to video game news podcasts in early high school, and I soon found that I loved reporting on a variety of topics — not just video games.
I love nothing more than the exhilarating process of finding the best words to say what needs to be said. I also like to dance. (It helps get the creative juices flowing.)
I’m currently doing freelance work for ESPN Esports. I’ve written for Game Informer as an intern and the Columbia Missourian as a state government reporter, and I’ve also reported for the various publications associated with the Missouri School of Journalism.
I have dabbled in podcasting, most successfully in my now-defunct, college-focused, conversational podcast, 6 Feet Undergrad.
You can find me on Twitter @CCJ1997, where I tweet mostly about my latest projects, video games and random science/nature videos.
