I am a recent graduate of Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa with a B.A. in Media Studies (August 2010-May 2012). Before Loras I attend Kirkwood Community College and received an A.A. in Media Communications/ Public Relations. While at Loras I participated in many productions including, but not limited to: directing the student newscast (3 semesters), running audio for live broadcast events, producing, directing and posting commercials, and traveling both in and out of the USA (Alabama and France) to produce and film various films. While at Loras my partner and I (Lauren DeWitt) received a Gold Eddy Award (student category) at the 2012 Cedar Rapids Film Festival for our documentary: Manasseh.
I have interned for two summers at OnMedia (cable production company) in Cedar Rapids and currently hold a part-time production position at MVP Video Production in Cedar Rapids. If I only had 24 hours to live I would spend my time trying to meet and positively impact as many people as I could.
