I’ve had a camera in my hands sense the age of 2 years old. I jokingly tell folks it was the first baby toy I played with. I remember as a little kid making my train set crash and filming it while it happened. I always enjoyed viewing the world through a camera lens, and making films. It wasn’t until high school and college, though that I really sharpened my skills and began working in the professional realm.
I have been lucky to be involved with media and digital production in the live and post environment. I have worked places such as WPDS-TV 14, SPC TV and The Tampa Bay Buccaneers. All of these have sharpened my knowledge and my passion for the production world. Every week though you can find me at First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks, where I am on staff. There, I direct, plan and organize many of the services with the other production staff that involve full audio, lighting and video production. This area is also a challenge as I am involved in the student ministry there working with and training students who want to pursue music/media. Our services reach about 3000 people a week live, and countless others from our live streaming service that we provide.
I am just about to finish a degree in Mass Communications at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, the culmination of five years of hard work. I am looking forward to what the future holds for me and those around me. I love working with people, working in teams, and working with equipment. I certainly see myself doing this for the rest of my life.
