This was for a film in the 2013 Red Eye Film Festival. I was in charge of promotions for this production. I took photos and updated social media, along with producing and editing this behind-the-scenes/promo video with interviews with the crew and B-roll footage.

'Vocal C(h)ords' - Red Eye Film Festival

This year I got to be a part of the Red Eye Film Festival (one weekend to shoot and edit a film) again, this time promoting a film, and not being involved in the production process. It was fun to be able to sit back and watch it all happen, and not having to be stressed about getting the film done on time (even if I did have to stay up until 5am one night!).

I was on set during set up and while filming, taking pictures and creating Facebook updates as we went. I also filmed interviews during breaks and edited together a behind-the-scenes/promo video that was released the day of the premiere. [Link to video]

Internship with Radio Mankato

This summer, I worked as a promotions intern at a local radio station, Radio Mankato. The stations KTOE, KFAN, KXAC (Oldies 100.5), KXLP, KDOG (Hot 96.7), and KATO (MN 93) are located there. I did some online work, and went with the on-air staff to live broadcasts and events. I learned a lot about the radio and entertainment business and about the work environment in general. 

At these events, which included small and big concerts, baseball games, and parades, I would help set up banners around the area, play bean bags or other activities with kids, hand out merchandise, and talk with people. I also assisted with the on-air staff at live broadcasts, from the local town carnival, and remotes, which took place in the mornings on weekends at grocery stores and car dealerships. 

With the online work, I usually came in two days a week, creating events pages for the websites, writing blog posts, and updating poll questions, as well as other office work. I also helped with the morning shows a few times, where I updated the website and Facebook page, answered callers, and helped with show content.

When school started again, I finished my credit for the internship with my college, but I continued to work as an intern at the station on my own. I came in one day a week in the mornings to work with the Top 40 station (Hot 96.7) morning show, as well as various events. I did a lot of video work, short videos that we film during or outside of the show which get posted on the Facebook page, some audio work, posting clips from the show on the website for listeners to hear later, and also updated the Facebook page

PromaxBDA Conference

In June, I was blessed to have received a scholarship to go to the PromaxBDA marketing and promotions conference in LA. I was chosen along with 9 other scholars from around the country to attend this conference with marketing professionals from the television industry.

I met a lot of people who were the heads of marketing for major networks, and I talked to some social media people, including the one who runs the social media for one of my favorite TV shows, “Glee”.  I also saw Jack Osbourne speak, saw Piers Morgan walking down a hallway, and listened to comedian Jay Mohr as he hosted the awards show. 

I am so grateful to have been a part of the conference. A lot of people I met said to keep contact about future opportunities so hopefully something will come from that.

Oh, last thing, I also just happened to see the one and only Mark Hamill. I was internally screaming the whole time. It was pretty awesome. 


"Spin Cycle" won the Emmy in the category of Arts and Entertainment/Cultural Affairs today at the Upper Midwest Emmys. Such a great honor!

Hockey has finished for the year! I had a great time learning the program with this amazing group of people. This was my first year in the broadcasting program. I worked as a camera operator for both the live broadcasts of the game (between the benches and fan shots) and the recorded 30-minute pregame show (main camera). I also edited a few packages for both shows. Thanks for a great year!

Pink Glove Dance Shoot

Here are some photos of the Pink Glove Dance shoot with Madelia Community Hospital.

Stone Path Studios

In January 2013, I was hired as the Social Media Director for Stone Path. I was in charge of creating posts for the Facebook page and created and designed a Tumblr blog where photos and notes will be posted about current productions. 

Here are some samples from the Facebook page:







And here is the design of the Tumblr blog:


Inkwell Literary Magazine

The Inkwell is a student literary magazine from Bethany. It publishes student prose, poetry, artwork, and photography. I was a staff member for all three years of college. In the 2013 spring semester, I created a Facebook page for the magazine and was its main admin for one year.

The Facebook page keeps students and other followers up to date on the Inkwell's events and deadlines. It is also used as a resource for writing tips and literary anecdotes.

Christ in Media - Media Outreach in World Missions Conference

In Fall 2012, the Media Outreach in World Missions conference was held at BLC by Christ in Media Institute. They need promotion and coverage of this conference through social media. I worked with them through Stone Path as the Social Media Manager.

I updated and redesigned their Facebook page and Twitter account, and created a Tumblr blog for both promotion and coverage. 

For promotion, I mostly targeted students at Bethany to persuade them to come to the conference. I created several posters that appealed to different majors for how the conference could apply to them. I also kept the general audience informed about what was coming up with the conference. I posted information about the speakers and the sessions topics that were going to be discussed. 

During the conference, I took photos to upload, posted live quotes from the sessions, and wrote summaries of the day. I also managed social media during a livestream a few months after the conference. I promoted the livestream and then took questions from online during the conference to relay to the speakers.

This was a project Stone Path did with Madelia Community Hospital and Clinic for the Pink Glove Dance. It was a one-day shoot in August 2012. We had a lot of fun shooting this music video with many great people. 

I did 2nd-camera work with the video. I shot the scenes that were not part of the main storyline - dancing with hospital workers - and the ground camera at the end. I also have a quick cameo if you can spot me!

This is the first project I had when I worked as Post Production Manager for Stone Path Studios in Summer 2012. Taylor Mason is a comedian that did a show for Kids Against Hunger to raise money. It was turned into a nationally-sold DVD.

For this project I did color correction, audio, and some editing for the 70-minute video and four short special features. I also designed the DVD and BluRay menus and disc labels. 

[If you would like to purchase the DVD, you can buy it HERE.]

This was a promotional video for the BLC website for the Hockey Broadcasting Program. Bethany broadcasts all the Minnesota State University Division I home hockey games. 

I was the producer for this project, but also did editing and camera (for the interviews - I was doing the broadcast during the game). Because I am a part of the broadcast, it was easy for me to work with people to get this project done. This was my first experience working with a client on my own, even if that client was BLC. 

This our entry for the 2012 Red Eye Film Festival. This film festival is one weekend long. We started pre-production the week of, shot on Friday and Saturday, and edited all-day Sunday for the viewing on Monday. We had a lot of fun with this project and won 2nd place in the festival. 

I was mainly the producer and editor, but I helped write the script, storyboards, and some camera work. (I also have a few brief cameos).
