When I graduated from UNT’s Radio, Televsion, and Film program I vowed I never wanted to work in TV or radio. After working for a recording studio (aka a non-profit), music libraries, the Dallas Stars, Microsoft, and producing content at the forefront of online education for CreativeLive…here I am….in TV!

My hat is quite tasty.
