PORTFOLIO OF WORK

Past. Present. Future.

ANDOVER'S BROADCASTING PROGRAM

In high school, I got the pleasure of working in our broadcasting class with other dedicated journalists and a brilliant teacher. I was lucky enough to visit Washington, D.C., through the class in November 2019 for the JEA competition and brought home the school's first award in a broadcasting category!

THE COLLEGIAN AT KANSAS STATE

 I joined the Collegian — K-State's independent student publication — as a videographer, but added news writing and photography later in Spring 2022.
I accepted the role of editor-in-chief in 2022 for my upcoming junior year, and I accepted the role again to serve through the 2023-24 school year.

THE FUTURE?

I would love to be a full-time videographer or video editor after graduation and someday a broadcasting teacher after I gain more experience. Maybe I could make a name for myself and be my own boss. Who knows what the future holds?
