I grew up in Beaverton, Oregon just outside of Portland. I studied English for a while at the University of Idaho, but ultimately ended up getting a B.A. in Broadcast & Digital Media. I have extensive knowledge and experience with professional video production techniques and documented every single day of my life at age 23 on video. I have worked many different jobs in the past 8 years. I have been a food preparer at fast food restaurants, an electronics salesman at retail stores, a videographer/editor for a public university, a Social Media Director for a marketing/advertising company, etc. I excelled at school early on, but only recently developed a full appreciation for my personal educational journey. I was involved in sports all throughout elementary and secondary school. I started off in basketball and soccer, but soon moved exclusively to distance running with cross country and track for 7 years. I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan and a proud Hufflepuff! I value friends and family above all else, but have aspirations of helping the world in a large way.
