The core of who I am centers around investing in people, bringing a positive attitude to help create a productive environment, and working hard to make sure my product is the best it can be. Regardless of my position or workplace, I will always do what I can to be successful and help others around me achieve their goals as well.

I am currently an Digital Editor at Fox 5 in Atlanta. I produce online content for the website and various social media platforms. In addition, I host live-streams to help continue the story beyond the constraints of an on-air newscast. Before this position, I did freelance digital work for brands like Tropical Smoothie Cafe, Tin Drum, and the Center for Health and Healing. I produced videos, photos, and other content for their various social platforms. In addition, I helped develop digital campaigns and re-design aspects of various webpages.

I also spent two years at Alabama News Network in Montgomery, Alabama as a television sports reporter and anchor. I won awards for a couple of my feature stories, covered the 2016 College Football National Championship, and regularly broke news about local sports teams and recruiting. My start in television came from a two month temporary job at WRBL in Columbus, Georgia while I was still in college. I also interned at WJCL in Savannah, Georgia and at IMG at the University of Georgia.

My skills include efficient and effective use of various video cameras and equipment, video editing softwares, and Adobe Premiere Suite. I love storytelling, regardless if it’s for a business, brand, or news outlet. I understand and can use social media platforms in various ways to tell a story. Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, or the newest platform, I can use it to find an audience.
