Summary

Currently studying Radio-Television-Film at UT in Austin, Wes aspires to work at a production company or as an actor / voice actor. Despite having little prior knowledge of editing and film upon his arrival to college, he has become very experienced in his field of study both from classes and especially from working at Texas Student Television, a local, student-run, FCC licensed television station that broadcasts around the University of Texas campus and Austin.

At TSTV, Wes produces Videogame Hour Live, an hour long show that reviews, previews, and plays video games. In his two years at the station, he has produced, directed, and edited over 40 episodes of VGHL and has helped with several of the other shows at the station such as The Night Nite Show, Sneak Peek, Movie Junkies, The War Room, and The Current as both entertainment director and assistant studio supervisor.
