Winning my first Emmy Award in 2008

Winning my first Emmy Award in 2008

My work in television began back in my sophomore year of high school.  My family had recently relocated from Mascoutah, Illinois to the much bigger Wichita, Kansas area for my father’s job with the United States Air Force.  To my surprise, my new high school had a television station with lots of equipment.  My career in TV and film was about to begin.

I spent the next three years building up skills and winning awards in the local community.  When I wasn’t producing news stories for the high school TV newscast, I was shooting short films.

Following high school (and a short stint at Bob Jones University) I went on to major in communications with an emphasis in broadcast journalism at the Elliott School of Communication at Wichita State University.  While in school I gained extensive experience working in Studio B, our college station’s newscast.  In addition I continued making short films and I worked full time at Kansas’ WB (later to become the Kansas CW).

Sensing a need for a change, I relocated in 2007 to the Washington, D.C. area to work for the Towne Group and to produce PSA spots for American Forces Network.  As of this date, I’ve received three Emmy Awards for my work.
