Profile Statement

I'm an enthusiastic, creative journalist working for Drury University as the campus reporter and videographer. I spend a majority of my time producing news-style packages for the Web on the general happenings on campus and Panthers athletics.

During my time in college, some of my highlights in and out of the classroom includes the following: 

  • Experience anchoring, reporting, writing, editing, shooting for, and producing state award-winning college sports show, "DU Sports."
  • Three years of experience editing on-air packages, VOBs, and highlights for DUTV and KOLR10 News.
  • Knowledge of editing systems like Final Cut Pro, Avid, Livetype, and Photoshop.
  • Winner of best sports package in the state of Missouri (MBEA) for two consecutive years.
  • Creative capabilities on set, in the field, and in the edit bay, including creating all "DU Sports" bumps and backgrounds.


Telling a good story, traveling, fine dining, basketball, live sporting events, interviewing people, fall weather, music, St. Louis Cardinals, and of course, my beloved Los Angeles Lakers.
