At any stage in my life, there has always been a combined passion for athletics and creative content.
 

At any stage in my life, there has always been a combined passion for athletics and creative content.

My interest in digital arts began with my self-introduction to Photoshop and eventually evolved into video editing. As I graduated high school, I knew I wanted to create, but didn’t know how to get started. During my time at The University of Iowa, I studied majors in both Marketing (B.B.A.) and Art (B.A.). I found marketing to be a fundamental practice of all business and have a close relationship to designers and producers. There was a natural relationship between my interest in creative content and business.

Much of what I thought was a realistic career opportunity changed during my sophomore year when I was hired as a Student Video Assistant with Iowa Football. With the guidance of my bosses, I soon realized that working within sports was a true possibility. Outside of my set job role of filming practices for coach’s film, I started to take on additional roles doing any video editing, production assistance, or learning experience I could. I later purchased my own camera equipment (Sony A7riii) and began to gain cinematography skills with guidance from others around me.

In my last two years at Iowa, I had the great chance to film all home basketball games with a RED cinema camera as a Student Videographer. Along with basketball, I shot select football, gymnastics, track & field, and tennis events.

After my graduation in May of 2019, I began my current full-time position with NASCAR as an associate producer in Charlotte, NC. In this role, I work closely with the Driver Marketing team to deliver creative content to the drivers to better promote themselves, along with the sport as well.

I am excited to begin my journey as a business-minded creative. I look forward to all the networking and business relationships I may have. I strive for each of my projects to continually improve and be the best possible product.
