Media Studies

Alex Pilnick is an MA student in the Media and Public Engagement program and is also pursuing the associated Environment, Policy and Society certificate.  He received his bachelor’s degree in Marine Science and Geology from the University of Miami in 2011 with a focus on carbonate reef systems.  After graduating, Alex worked for 4 years in Media Production and Marketing roles in the ornamental aquaculture industry as this enabled him to combine his love of photography and media with his marine science background and interests.  Alex has a passion for coral reef conservation but has since decided the mountains would make a nice home for graduate school.
