I'm Ben Righetti, and this is my personal portfolio website where you can see some of the work that I've done during my time at BCIT. I am currently in the Broadcast and Online Journalism program as I have always found this field of study intriguing. I aim to be a sports reporter, and hope that my schooling mixed with a rich passion for sports can help me achieve that.
Being born in London, England, I was raised in a "football" crazy house. My love for the game as well as many others grew when I moved to Vancouver in 2007. Quickly finding out that I would never make it as a professional athlete, I figured that I still wanted to be in the world of sports, and that sport broadcasting would be the way to go.
Writing for several websites during high school, when it came time to decide what to study post-secondary, broadcast journalism was a no-brainer. I currently work for the Canadian Football League as a social media correspondent for the BC Lions, a reporter covering the Vancouver Whitecaps for lastwordonsoccer.com, as well as colour commentator for the White Rock Whalers in the PJHL.
Throughout my tenure at BCIT, I will upload my work to this site . My portfolio has a wide range of sections so I can display all different types of work and projects. I am in the second semester of my second and final year in the "Broadcast and Online Journalism" program.
I created this website in my "Online and Social Media" class. It's purpose is to display my work and make it easy for people to find work that I have done. I look forward to sharing my work and my experiences at BCIT on here.
