Biography

My passion for videography began at the age of 14 when I was enrolled in my school's broadcasting course. From then on I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's Degree in English and a minor in Film Studies. While attending Texas A&M, I worked at 12th Man Productions for Texas A&M's athletic department. At 12th Man Productions, I was responsible for producing and editing content for live sports production, and creating highlight videos for multiple sports.

Post graduation, I moved overseas to work with the Department of Defense in Garmisch- Partenkirchen, Germany. As much as I loved living overseas, I knew I was ready to get back into video production. Two weeks after moving back to the US, I was offered a video position with The Ohio State University's athletic department. While there, I managed game day crews, technical directed in-house feed for football and hockey games, created graphics, and edited videos for various sports on both AVID and Adobe Premiere platforms.

I moved to the Houston area when offered to teach Video Production to upper level high school students. Knowing that my passion for film was instilled in me during my high school years, I felt this was a great way to give back to a community. Since moving to Houston, I have worked graphics for ESPN3 broadcast of Sugar Land Skeeters, University of Houston, Rice University, Houston Dynamo, the NFL Draft, and Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Last but certainly not least, I am the Stadium Deck Producer for the Houston Texans. I teach my students everything from film history to how to make short films. Our first year of submitting into a state competition, all three of their documentaries were chosen out of 750 films. Our second year submitting into a state competition, their documentary placed in the top 20 out of 900 films. Many of my former students have gone on to different film schools, a couple own their own production company, and some even work on movie sets in LA for productions like, Birds of Prey, TENET, Westworld, and more! It has been a journey I have loved to watch these students find their passion, talents, and dreams within my course.
