Employee

CMU Athletics

During CMU sporting events I would be assigned a certain job to execute for the entire event. The job I executed during CMU football games was red hat, being the media communicator between the press and the referees, as well as run camera live to the video board. For all other events, including mens/womens basketball, womens gymnastics, womens soccer, mens baseball, and wrestling, I was either responsible for running audio during these events, or operating the video boards in the arena which consisted of animations/graphics such as player headshots.

Bachelor of Applied Arts

Central Michigan University

During my time at Central Michigan University, I was a part of Moore Hall Television Sports production team, our award winning on campus television station. MHTV Sports consisted of students setting up their own broadcast at CMU sporting events. My responsibility with MHTV Sports consisted of: gathering all equipment necessary for the broadcast, unloading the equipment at the event, running cables for power, cameras, and field and talent mics, setting up cameras and tripods, setting up field mics throughout the venue, setting up lighting for talent, running audio, directing the show, operating all cameras, and technical directing. In my early years with MHTV Sports, the more popular sports, such as mens basketball, were broadcasted live to television. Just recently, CMU Athletics and MHTV Sports have joined together so that all broadcasts of all CMU sports are streamed live to CMU’s Athletic website.
