I am currently the post-production manager for the Eyes of the Storm documentary. This four-part series documents how the news media has covered some of the biggest natural disasters of the last decade. I manage a team of 15 people and 15TB of media that includes 900 hours of video and over 225 interviews. The target release date for this project is in November of 2020.
The trailer for this project is not currently available to the public. You can see the other projects I have done in relation to this below with our First Informers series. Please reach out to me if you would like access to the Eyes of the Storm trailer or for me to share more about what my role entails.

In the most recent piece of the First Informers series that I have produced is about how journalists are able to use tools such as Facebook Live to reach their audiences.
I traveled to Panama City, FL and North Carolina following hurricanes Michael and Florence to document how journalists covered these storms.
Beaumont, TX - First Informers Hurricane Harvey
First Informers: First Informers is a series of documentaries that I helped produce for the National Association of Broadcasters covering how journalists assisted the public during Hurricane Harvey and Irma.
A team traveled to Houston and Florida to interview journalists and get footage of the damage. I traveled with the team to Florida and was responsible for the field audio and assisting with each of the shoots.
I also was an editor that helped log over 10,000 files. I edited this video over Beaumont, Texas and helped pull footage for the other videos produced.
Opioid TV Spot
Opioid TV Spot: This spot was created by Gaylord Hall Productions for the Illinois Broadcast Association as a spot promoting programs to combat opioid use disorder. The spot takes place at a high school football game and involved hundreds of extras.
I was responsible for the operations part of this production. I had to coordinate crew responsibilities and equipment including all of the grip and electric portion. We had to bring in our own lighting to supplement the stadium lighting. We also brought in generators and a jib.
Behind the Scenes of Rokerthon: Pre-Production Meetings
Behind the Scenes of Rokerthon: Pre-Production Meetings: During the Spring of 2017, Al Roker and the Today Show came to the University of Oklahoma as a part of Rokerthon 3. My Client Production class brought them to campus and helped produce the event where we broke two world records live on the Today Show. We also produced a series of behind the scenes videos and my video above covered our pre-production meetings.
I managed the logistics for the day of the event and assisted in the filming of the interviews. I was also responsible for editing this piece together.
