I am a graduate of the University of Tennessee where I graduated with a degree in Journalism & Electronic Media. I love creating things in all digital mediums: photography, video, audio, graphic design, etc. While I am passionate about media creation, my true passion is service. My main goal is to help people.
I work at my local NPR affiliate WUOT, where I serve the public through providing local news, weather, and traffic. I think that public radio stations are an invaluable resource to the community. They offer a connection to the community that is hard to come by elsewhere.
I also work in Public Relations Department at Roane State Community College. I produce radio PSA’s that inform the public about what services the college has to offer. This doesn’t mean advertisements for the college. Many of the pieces are displaying free resources that the college offers everyone, not just students. These pieces include interviews with Roane State Staff and members of the community.
In addition to my media work, I am a park assistant for the Town of Farragut’s Parks and Recreation Department. At the parks, I help prepare for community leagues, perform park maintenance, and help park patrons in any way I can.
I volunteer at the Helen Ross McNabb Center where I serve as a “safe adult” in their therapeutic daycare program. The program is dedicated to helping children from 4-6 who have gone through some form of trauma. I supervise the kids, encourage good behavior, and help produce a positive atmosphere.
Aside from my professional work, I am a lover of music. I play guitar, bass, ukulele, drums, piano, and really whatever I can get my hands on. I love playing instruments and singing songs with my friends and family.
