To obtain a full-time position in the production and/or post-production of digital media projects in an established professional environment.
I am a recent graduate of Temple University where I received my Bachelor's of Arts degree in Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Mass Media with a concentration in Television Production. After becoming a pioneering member in the launch of the in-house student run morning news show at Council Rock North High School in 2005, I decided I wanted to develop a career in the Mass Media field.
Having interned in the Newsroom at Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia during the Fall 2008 semester, my interest in the media field strengthened.
I am a hard worker with strong time-management skills, I show great leadership qualities, and I take pride in a job well done. I have a strong desire to learn and perfect my skills in the broadcasting industry, and I never turn down an opportunity to expand my horizons. I work well with teams and have strong interpersonal communication skills. I am always striving to perform better with each project I am assigned, and I know I can be a strong asset to any company that takes a chance on me.
I would like to obtain a full-time position in the production and/or post-production of digital media projects, preferably in a sports-news environment.
