I’ve been telling stories and conveying ideas through video creation since 2008, even though I didn’t much know what I was doing way back then. Over the years, I found that I’ve always felt the most joy and the strongest sense of accomplishment when an idea that I made up in my head starts to come to life through my video or audio works. There’s something about proving to yourself that something you envision can become real that gives me real satisfaction.

During my time at Appalachian State University, I discovered my passion for broadcast media, specifically the realm of radio. I had opportunities to attend several NAB events and even became one of the first interns for “KISS Mornings with Maney, Roy, and LauRen” (now “The MRL Morning Show”) in Charlotte. As I mold myself and my skills through the communications world, I also produce and host my own podcast “Casual Babble” which can be enjoyed on YouTube and several streaming services like Spotify.
