Welcome to my digital portfolio

My name is Joe Amditis.

This website contains a selection of my digital projects, hobbies and published works. Take a look around. If you see something you like, want me to make something for you, or think we would work well together please let me know!

But first, here’s a little more about who I am and what I do:

I am the associate director of the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University. I graduated from Rutgers University in 2013 and earned my B.A. with a double-major in political science and criminal justice. In 2016, I received my M.A. from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in New York City. I am the cofounder and former director of operations of Muckgers, an hyperlocal, student-focused, investigative publication serving the Rutgers-New Brunswick community.

I am a seven-year veteran of the New Jersey Army National Guard. I was deployed to Iraq from 2008-2009.

I am an experienced international relations researcher, graphic designer, audio and video editor (including 360° video), and a wannabe podcaster.

Over the last three years, I have coordinated two statewide collaborative reporting projects in New Jersey: Dirty Little Secrets: New Jersey’s Toxic Legacy and In the Shadow of Liberty: Immigration in NJ. I am currently working on a third collaborative reporting endeavor, called Voting Block, which focuses on the upcoming 2017 gubernatorial election in New Jersey.
