Day to Day

They would see me editing all types of content! From 15 to 30 second promotional spots for the TV programs we air, to half hour TV shows that we produce, I get to work on a little bit of everything for both TV broadcast and web delivery.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

The most important thing is getting along well with co-workers and communicating effectively with others. Other than that, having sharp eyes and attention to detail are extremely important.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

It's never too early to start learning about cameras and computers and editing! Pick up a camera and just start shooting!

The Noise I Shed

From Myself:

"Why do you keep changing your mind? What's taking so long to figure out what you want to do?"

Keep forging ahead. Don't worry if it takes time to find something that you like. Don't be afraid to try new things!
