Summary

I am a college graduate from the University of Southern Indiana. Currently I am a Morning Show Producer at Radio One. I'm always seeking production positions in television but I'm open to any company/position that will give me experience.

During my years at USI, I have worked as a reporter at USI's radio station, THE EDGE and its television program, ACCESS USI, as an editor. I was an active member of USI's Student Support Services where I worked/volunteered as a mentor for students.

Classes at USI have shown me how to properly write, shoot video, edit video, report, and all the production skills of television broadcasting.

I also had opportunities to intern at South Central Media, HOT96 working with the morning crew- Atom & Shawnda and later was offered a position as a remote technician after my internship. Recently, I interned with 14 WFIE, Evansville News Leader, and was later offered a job in production after my internship.

I'm interested in a job that will let me be creative but I also want to learn new things. Television has always been a passion of mine because it's always evolving, I want to be able to evolve with a station to make it better. Any station that's looking for someone creative and willing to learn, I feel I would be a great edition.
