Robert Denton is a senior journalism major at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he also studies technology and entrepreneurialism. Denton, a photojournalist at heart, loves branching out into different media, most recently exploring video and database journalism. He will be the editor-in-chief of the student-run news website, the CU Independent, during the fall semester and has held previous internships with The Greeley (Colo.) Tribune and with the multimedia firm Rich Clarkson & Associates. During his time in those roles, Denton has covered subjects ranging from gang violence to national rodeos and everything in between. In January Denton was able to participate in the first PBS NewsHour InaugBlog. He was one of 15 college journalists selected to travel to Washington for the second inauguration of President Barack Obama. Denton took photos of numerous events and produced interactive maps to showcase the content created in the three-day program. When not taking photos or working on a story, Denton enjoys Batman movies and website design. After his final year in college, Denton hopes to push the boundaries of contemporary journalism via alternate forms of storytelling.
