I'm a 2017 graduate from East Tennessee State University with a Bachelor's of Science in Media and Communication with a Minor in Advertising.
If I am not working a sporting event, I will most likely be watching a sporting event, exploring the mountains somewhere nearby or taking photos of the outdoors. I am a big fan of adventures and always looking for somewhere
new to go and explore.
My experience in the live production field may seem short but in just the past couple years i've worked events that have taught me things that being in a classroom can not. Most notable event on my resume would be The Battle at Bristol. The largest attended college football game in history.
At Appalachian State, I worked daily on new and exciting video inside the Athletic Department. These videos include hype videos, one-on-one interviews, call-to-action videos for marketing intiatives and so much more! On game days, you would usually find me on the sideline with a camera on my shoulder or in a control room contributing to the broadcast.
I have a passion for working in sports and every day that passion is a reality. With working in college athletics, I consider myself versatile and adaptive to all the different opportunities I am granted. Working with all the different coaches, student-athletes and members of the community is not only rewarding career wise, but has lead to connections being made that will last forever.
While at ETSU, I specialized in live video production of athletic events at ETSU. That included directing and producing ESPN3, SoConDigital Network and YouTube live streams of a variety of sports including FBS & FCS Football, Division 1 College Basketball, College Baseball and many other sports.
I have not just been limited to working in college sports. I can be found working replay at NASCAR, camera for ESPN College Basketball, and Xpression for multiple ESPN college sports.
