Emmy Award winner. National marketing and brand strategist.
As an undergrad I worked at a local PBS station as a student employee and learned every position from Teleprompter Operator to Assistant Director.
Upon receiving my Bachelor of Arts in Media Arts in 2004, I went to work on regional productions specializing in Field Audio and Post-Production Audio flagyl 400. I transitioned to Shooting, Editing, and DVD production, creating DVDs for distribution at Blockbuster Video and Hollywood Video chains (Google them, they did exist).
My expertise with all stages of video (pre thru post) production led to me being hired as the first Video Communications Manager for UANews at the University of Arizona. I was a one-man-band responsible for producing over 350 short documentaries about the UA and publishing them on a new video sharing site called YouTube. Over 4 years, my work at the UA was nominated 9 regional Emmy awards, winning 6 including Best News Producer.
In 2010, The Rocky Mountain Region of the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences awarded me a Special Achievement Award in New Media Interactivity for my work pioneering the UANews’ online video distribution model.
In 2011 I was named the first National Visual Strategy Manager at Make-A-Wish America’s national headquarters. I was responsible for creating all the national PSAs for Make-A-Wish and oversee video distribution guidelines and brand strategy for the organization’s 62 national chapters. While their I produced videos with celebrity wish granters like Jon Stewart, Miley Cyrus, John Cena, and Nigel Barker on work that was distributed online, via broadcast, and on digital video billboards across the country.
In 2014 I returned to school to obtain my Master in Public Administration with a specialty in Public Management and Finance. I graduated in 2016 and was inducted into the Pi Alpha Alpha honors society. I am currently the Director of Marketing and Communications at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.
