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 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.
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.
Sports are beautiful to me, and sometimes there is an environment to match.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
