To obtain an entry level position at a company within the entertainment industry; ultimately working my way up into a leadership or executive position.
The past four years I have taken multiple public relations, advertising, and marketing courses in preparation for a job working with people. As seen in my resume, I’ve worked on several campaigns, including a political campaign, promotions for a non-profit organizations as well as doing public relations consulting with various groups and businesses, and I feel as though those campaigns were very helpful experiences and give me a good perspective on what responsibilities this job market requires.
Due to my experience on the Lance staff, I know I have the confidence to remain calm under-pressure. I’m very logical and strategic thinking. I’m always thinking one step ahead of where I am. I am adaptable and capable of doing a variety of different jobs. While doing interviews for the Lance and meeting people while doing promotions and campaigns with The Marketing Bunch, I discovered that I am easy to get along with and find it easy to make friends and connections.
Entertainment, music specifically, is what I’m passionate about and it’s where my heart lies. I have a dynamic personality and get along well with anyone. I'm enthusiastic and excited to join the entertainment industry. I'm hardworking and a quick learner.

I have been shooting photos throughout the last seven years of my life. I greatly enjoy shooting sports photos. This one was taken my junior year of high school.
Family is a huge part of my life. I love my parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, and they are a big part of who I am today. This picture was taken in October of 2010 when my sister was just waking up from her last surgery. That is her four-year-old daughter, happy to see her awake.
love music. It is what I'm truly passionate about in life. I am never happier than when I'm at a concert or listening to music drive down a highway. This photo was taken fairly recently at a stop on Taylor Swifts mega-successful Fearless Tour. It was taken during her opening number "You Belong With Me."
I have a soft spot for animals. This photo of a playful polar bear was taken at the Kansas City Zoo during the summer of 2007.
In the summer of 2007 I went on a service trip to Iceland. It was a life changing experience and I have grown to be such a better person because of it. This is the glacier that takes up a large portion of the ground area on the continent.
Sports are beautiful to me, and sometimes there is an environment to match.
I have a good sense of predicting what is about to happen in a sporting event. It is a good skill to have when photographing fast moving events. It allows me to be prepared for the best moments of an event.
I enjoy shooting picture of people in their natural comfort zone. Photos of people are more special when they are in their environment. Jayden and I spent an afternoon at the lake when this photo was taken.
