When I was ten years old, I received a digital camera as a gift from my grandparents. While their intent was for me to use it to take pictures, I quickly discovered its movie mode function. Thus began my passion for videography and nearly a decade of sporting a camera as my go-to accessory.
The goofy talk show videos I began filming with my friends in middle school have since evolved into news packages and creative video content that I’ve produced for numerous publications.
In high school, I was a member of our school’s NATAS Student Production Award-winning TV class, Steele News Live. As a member of the class, I helped produce, anchor and direct 140 live newscasts in addition to producing six packages and one three-part series. I received three NATAS Student Production Awards for my work at Steele News Live.
I am a junior at Ohio University where I am studying Journalism Strategic Communication. During my freshman year, I was a member of the JFresh Newsroom, a team of elite freshman journalism students. In addition to meeting once a week to meet with professionals to discuss the changing fields of journalism and media, I contributed work to a class-produced iBook and produced two video stories. I also produced news packages for WOUB News as a member of my Radio and Television Reporting and Writing Class.
I currently work as the student videographer for Advancement Communication and Marketing at Ohio University where I am responsible for shooting and editing content for the OHIO Alumni Association. I am interested in producing creative and informative video content for social media and online publications. If you are interested in viewing my work, please check out the links below!
