I am a self motivated hard worker. I enjoy helping people and always find time to discuss solutions with them. I believe in being a team player in the office and I enjoy high intensity, fast pace work. I can work under pressure as well as at a pace to my liking. I bring a positive attitude to the office everyday and try to make it a fun and enjoyable working environment.
Aug 2011 - Present
I helped write and edit the media guide, set up credentials for media and scouts, I improve the Web site by updating content, adding stories and photos as well as updating the home page poll. I help Doug Plagens (the new team broadcaster) write game notes, edit the game-by-game stats, roster bios and write the game previews and game stories. My daily work consists of adding photos and video to the Web site as well as keeping records of newspaper clippings and stats for each player. In game, I get the stats to players, coaches, media and scouts. I also ran the Time on Ice program. I have also worked with the players multiple times, whether it was for a community relations event or to escort them during media day and other public events. While working with the team I also tried my hand at play by play. I bought a personal recorder and sat in one of the press boxes at the stadium to call the game.

WKYC Channel 3 News
I sat on the assignment desk where I looked for new stories to pop up. I made Police and Fire beat calls to see if there was anything going on. I also sat in with a few of the producers to learn what it takes to produce a half hour show. Along with sitting in with producers I learned anchor techniques from the 7 p.m. news anchors. I regularly went out on stories with reporters learning how to tell a story in video format and include all the elements. When I went out with reporters I was able to interview people for stories as well as work on stand ups and how to use the cameras. A producer came up to me and had me go out on a story. I went out, interviewed the a couple of people and then came back and edited the segment and wrote a script that was later read on the 11 o'clock news.

During my time at CSU I have been involved in several campus organizations including Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity, where I held many positions like secretary and vice president. In the classroom I worked along side classmates to produce a half hour newscast. During my time at the University received a position as sports editor for two different campus newspapers and worked alongside the athletic department to get sports articles out to the faculty and students.
