El Cid

Alex Woodmansee

Alex Woodmansee, Photo Editor

After my first year as the Sports Editor for El Cid, I progressed to Photography Editor, as photography fits my skill set very well. I originally joined El Cid to improve my writing skills and meet others who value the same interest in writing as me, but my time here developed into a re-awakening of my photography skills from middle school and the discovery of my hidden talent for sports photography. Along with bass fishing on weekends, I spend plenty of time sailing San Diego Bay and Mission Bay with the sailing team or with friends. I also obsess about the European Racing series Formula One, in which I get up at odd hours to tune into races on the other side of the world. I look forward to writing for El Cid during my senior year at Cathedral Catholic High School and capturing all the success and special moments found all around campus into my camera and onto your screen.
