Multimedia Reporter and Producer

Location icon United States

We are currently living in a digital age where it is absolutely imperative for journalists to have an enriched understanding of multimedia production and market consumption. Passionate about content creation and media production, I have developed a diverse awareness in various digital mediums, which range from radio, television, online, photo, infographic design, podcasts, social media and mobile content. In addition to my experience using these various platforms, I have continued to strengthen my writing, broadcasting, analytical and public speaking skills, particularly in the sports industry. I am also proficient in Adobe Premiere, Adobe Audition, Wordpress, Squarespace, and Frequency, as well as A/V equipment. In a business world that’s continuously changing, it is time for myself to change with it through hard work and dedication. My objective is to continue my professional journalism career with excellence and integrity, specifically as a reporter, producer, broadcaster and writer in sports and entertainment media.
