Summary

I'm Kevin Rose, a graduate from Kutztown University in search for a career in television production and creative writing.

I held a semester internship with Viacom in their post production operations department and am currently an intern with the advertising/production company Rooster New York. 

During my senior year I developed, wrote, and produced a biweekly talk/sketch comedy show that aired over the cable channels owned by the university and on YouTube. During this experience, I learned how to craft a half-hour program, how to work with a large team, and I got a better insight into what people  find amusing. The experience was rewarding as I got to flex my creative muscles in a time sensitive environment. I thus learned and adapted to the dreaded concept of deadlines.

I have also been on the University's radio station for four years and have served one year as president. In my time at the radio station I've read and recorded the daily news, done interviews both over the telephone and in person with local activists and musicians, and done the only morning show for two years. 

I also have experience with news having been the main news anchor for one year, also writing the news.
