What can I say? After being at abc27 for only 5 years, i have already reached some of my goals. I started as a tape editor, and after four promotions I am in charge of the "Live at 5," newscast, one of our station's highest rated shows.

Next up: Management?

I absolutely love every aspect of this field and whether it be producing a show, anchoring a segment, or simply running an audio board, I know not only could I do the task well, but also I would enjoy every minute of it. I got into this profession because I love people and audio/visual technology, and there is nothing more rewarding to me then helping people tell their stories anyway I can.

I am proficient with Final Cut Pro, ENPS, Microsoft Office, Contribute, PhotoShop, Adobe Illustrator, Twitter, Avid, Logic, Audacity, Audition, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, WordPress, SoundSlides, Logic and basic Flash and HTML.
