Currently I’m working for CBS 62/CW50 as a Street Team Member. As a member of the team I help plan, produce, shoot and edit different field projects. I cover a variety of local events throughout the Detroit Metropolitan Area creating short videos which are posted to the CW50 Detroit website along with posting Facebook and Twitter updates throughout the events. Along with working at the CBS Station I also work for Kaiser Studio. As a photographer at Kaiser Studio I shoot school portraits and provide sports photography for Detroit Metropolitan Area Schools.
I’m finishing up my Master’s degree in Electronic Media Studies from Central Michigan University. While attending CMU I was a graduate teaching assistant were I taught an introduction to video production lab. For this lab I created and graded projects and held office hours so students could receive extra help. Along with teaching the lab I also worked in the video equipment facility where I would schedule appointments for the use of the equipment and maintained the facility.
When I have the time I also freelance with M-1 Studios. When working with M-1 Studios I mostly edit with Adobe Premiere Pro CS6/CC working on projects like the Ford Arts, Beats and Eats festival promotional videos, Heritage Works grant videos, Michigan Humane Society videos, and Gilda’s Club videos just to name a few. M-1 Studios has also given me many opportunities to go on production shoots were I do a variety of tasks such as setting up lights, sound equipment, cameras and keeping track of timing among other duties.
