WMUL tenure began: Fall 2007
Outside of that, I love school in general and all the opportunities it provides. I report, produce, and anchor for Marshall's television news program, MU Report, and do the same for Marshall's daily television news update, Up to the Minute. I'm also the president of Marshall's chapter of the National Broadcasting Society. I'm currently interning at WSAZ too.
I also love sports. I grew up playing basketball, but now-a-days I just watch a ton of sports and get my athletic fix from working like a maniac. I would also be considered a health nut were it not for all the chocolate I eat.
I love the people I've met at WMUL; my friends mean the world to me. I also love keeping busy-- I may come off as a little too serious when you first meet me, but once you get to know me I'm a huge goofball. I do, however, have a ton of goals and I'm so thankful for all the opportunities that I've found at WMUL. It's given me the opportunity to win more than 20 awards and subsequently, taken me to Austin, Dallas, and Las Vegas.
My best advice to aspiring journalists it to get involved, give 100% and take advantage of every opportunity-if you have that sort of initiative you can do whatever you want to do. My second best advice is to habe fun and make friends along the way.
