I'm an award-winning producer, director, editor, and videographer with over 10 years of professional video production experience. I live in Normal, Illinois but have worked all over the United States on everything from documentaries to commercial spots to short films. My full-time gig is running Droi Media, but I teach a course on digital journalism and a course on visual communication at Illinois State University.
I'm a huge nerd. If I'm not making videos, building my own gear, or analyzing stats from my latest production you can usually find me reading, binge-watching shows on Netflix and Hulu, running, cycling, cooking, or playing with my cats, Elway and Earhart, and my dog, Emerson Collieflower. I'm a bit of an environmentalist, an avid doodler, and I brew my own beer.
I'm a multimeda geek with 7 years of experience in print, radio, public relations, social media, and strategic planning. I've spent most of my time honing my skills in Central Illinois working for corporate and university news outlets, government agencies, and non-profits. I organize, plan and create ideas for Droi Media. Adam and I work effortlessly as a team to provide Droi Media clients with awesome, fun videos!
I'm not quite as nerdy as Adam, but I try. I spend a lot of my free time volunteering Droi Media for non-profit projects, reading every book I can get my hands on, running, cooking for our dynamic duo, and hanging out with our pets.
