Whether it be crossing rivers in an African jungle, standing in a field in the Midwest during a thunderstorm, or climbing numerous flights of stairs in Texas heat, I’ll do anything needed in order to get the shot.
I love traveling and have global experience on four continents. While nature and wildlife are some of my favorite types of things to capture, I enjoy almost all of my photo and video assignments.
I graduated from Baylor University where I got my bachelor’s degree in New Media. While in college I was fortunate to get to work closely with Curtis Callaway, a former Cousteau Diver, to learn photography and video. Baylor also gave me a taste of teaching. Professors enlisted me to teach classes including Photo I, Intro to Video, Media Design, Editing, and Advanced Editing.
I worked with a commercial photography firm, Julien & Lambert Photographic Services in Fort Worth for five years. Through this company, I learned to work professionally in events, on location, and do studio photography. I have served as their primary video producer on commercial projects.
While a student at Baylor, I also worked as the senior photo editor for The Lariat, an on-campus news organization at Baylor University with a print and multimedia presence. My experience with The Baylor Lariat included producing photos and video in a timely manner, conducting interviews, and managing schedules of other photographers. I previously held a position with The Lariat as a multimedia producer, in which I was required to produce stand-alone video packages each week while also assisting with broadcast news filming.
I am an award-winning media producer, taking first place in several Texas collegiate competitions in photo and video, including first place in television news non-feature story for the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association and first place in TV/radio news or a feature story for the Houston Press Club. Other competitions include Columbia Scholastic Press Association, Associated Collegiate Press, and Society of Professional Journalists.
