As education reporter for Under the Flatirons, Greg Ramirez approaches the craft and study of his beat with relentless curiosity.
His professional career, which spans multiple industries and cities, started in public relations, where he served in the National Hockey League for both the Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators. In those roles, he worked closely with front-office executives and athletes to promote the on and off-ice endeavors of each club. Later, in Seattle, he helped an architecture firm shape a new identity as they repositioned themselves in the Puget Sound region. It’s his time as an educator, though, guiding at-risk students at a Dallas-area high school, that he found most edifying. That’s where he learned the somber responsibility of citizenship and the devastating effects of its absence.
Now as a journalist-in-training, he aspires to distill the experiences of others into meaningful conversations and stories, which he hopes will incite a revolution in the way we understand each other and the world.
Born in Mexico City, and raised in Dallas, Ramirez received his bachelor’s degree in radio, television and film from the University of North Texas. He can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow him on Twitter, @GregoryKRamirez.
