Meet the editor: David Slifka, Digital Production Manager

Collegian Technical

David Slifka is the digital production manager for The Collegian for the 2019-20 school year and a third-year student majoring in journalism and media communications and minoring in music, stage and sports production. 

He has been involved with Rocky Mountain Student Media since his freshman year, but this is his first year at The Collegian. Previously, Slifka has worked as music director of KCSUFM, along with being a DJ for the station. Over this summer, Slifka has started curating The Stump, a newsletter highlighting new Collegian content, which will continue on during the school year.

This past summer, Slifka interned for Redstone Sound, a recording studio in Loveland, Colorado. This allowed him to take full control over the company’s online presence, as well as record and edit music.

Beyond the newsroom, Slifka loves spending as much time as he can in the outdoors, including fishing, hiking, mountain biking and snowboarding. When he is not enjoying these hobbies, it is not uncommon for him to be playing ultimate Frisbee on campus or drinking an Americano at Momo Lolo Coffee House.  

Slifka is ready to take this publication to higher levels on the digital platform and continue to craft his journalistic skills. He also is looking into transmedia storytelling and incorporating that within The Collegian.
