In my early 20s, I left northeast Ohio and traveled the world as a military broadcast journalist. I spent 12 years in the U.S. Air Force, serving as a radio deejay in South Korea, Italy, and Afghanistan. I also produced television news features that highlighted the missions of my brothers and sisters in arms. In 2010, I was selected to attend the prestigious S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. Following a year where I learned invaluable skills, I was chosen to serve as the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds' sole video production specialist.
As amazing as my military career was, in 2017 it was time for me to move on from military service. And in 2020, after a decade-and-a-half, I also decided it was time to come back to the place I have always called home. Now that I'm here, I hope to make a positive impact on my community and help small businesses and non-profits meet and exceed their goals using the skills I've developed in video/audio production, and public relations.
