I was formally educated in broadcasting from a trade school in Minnesota known as Brown College (not to be confused with the other Brown, although you should see the reactions I get when I just say “Brown”). I learned more working in the field, working close to TV news crews and embed producers. In 2015, I took a trip to Athens, Greece to shoot footage of the debt crisis and then as the 2016 Presidential Election came around, I started to read up on politics.
2016 was a busy year on the campaign trail. Seeing how the process works up close. Filming candidates and getting a perspective that not many people get to experience. This is where I started to learn more about journalism. How to be at event and present it with an unbiased approach, while maintaining principals and integrity.
Fast-forward to 2019, I’ve been living and working in Washington DC the past two-years. My craft stays consistent, video/photo, I know what I do best and am confident in that, but I have enjoyed learning/covering the political arena from running around Capitol Hill and visits to The White House. In the end, I just want to keep doing what I what I do best and present it to the best of my knowledge with principal and integrity.
