Summary

I am currently finishing up my senior year at Elon University. I will graduate with a BA in Media Arts and Entertainment with a concentration in Broadcast and New Media.  My goal is to eventually become a producer working on various television projects.

My professional experience has allowed me to have an opportunity to intern at the Food Network in New York City.  I was apart of the productions of 30 Minute Meals with Rachel Ray, Iron Chef America and many other productions as well.  I also worked with Eurosport Soccer Catalogue. With Eurosport I worked with the video producer creating web content for the company website and social media platforms and producing commercials for ESPN and FOX Soccer Channel.

While at Elon I have been involved with Student Media as a Director and Executive Producer of Elon Phoenix Weekly; A 30-minute news magazine all about the Elon Phoenix Athletic program that airs on ESPN2 Saturday mornings. I am also team leader for the engineer student staff.
