Summary

I spent 4 years in the Navy as a broadcast journalist. During this time I shot and edited video for Naval Media Center and other outlets. I also created, shot, and edited a series of safety videos. I've hosted radio shows, made television and radio spots, put together the ship-wide newspaper, been a photographer, updated the ship website, and led the video department for about a year before I left to pursue my education.

I went to film school at Cal State Fullerton and became especially interested in TV development, but thanks to my Navy experience, I have (and will always) consider myself a media professional with several passions within the world of Media.

Over the last year and a half, I have worked with several websites, covering poker tournaments. I have written highlight and feature articles and hosted Periscope and Facebook Live interviews and tournament coverage. I am an admin on PokerNews.com social media accounts. I also provide photos and video coverage, track tournament results, engage on social media and am directly engage the audience at events. I've also been helping to build an audience for SnapShove, a poker app created by Max Silver.
