Matthew Farina

Matthew Farina is a senior at the University of North Florida majoring in communication with a minor in international business. Matthew chose a concentration in multimedia journalism because he loves to tell stories. His favorite stories explore universal human emotions—the kind of things that make us laugh, cry or cheer. His background in multimedia journalism and social media marketing includes shooting live ESPN3 sporting events, interning for an NPR member news station, creating and co-hosting a YouTube podcast, and building his personal brand via social media while studying abroad in Dubai. When Matthew’s not interviewing Duval County residents for his latest feature package, you can find him running through the streets of Jacksonville and Neptune Beach as he trains for his next marathon.
