Graduate / Broadcast journalism

I have worked in a fast pace environment while maintaining a positive attitude. I am a team player and like to be hands on when working on a newscast. My experience at Penn State, and working in a live news broadcast control room, has given me enough knowledge to follow my dream as a TV news producer. I am ready to pursue my career in the broadcasting business. I am willing to work hard to the top and make myself well-known in the broadcasting industry. I understand that it will be a long journey but I am excited to see what the future holds.

Junior / Broadcast Journalism

I have been born and raised in New York City area, where I have spent my last three summers working for Sports Illustrated and Players’ Tribune in Manhattan as an intern. At Sports Illustrated I worked for their daily live show, SI Now and I am currently still interning for The Players’ Tribune as their social media intern remotely, while remaining a full time student. Here as a student, I engage in TV production, radio and writing courses to hone my skills in different realms of the Sports Industry. I aspire to work in Sports TV Production; whether it be original content or Live TV programming in the future. I look forward to being involved in Centre County Report here at Penn State next semester where students create a one hour broadcast per week on current news. My main interests are sports, trying new and exotic cuisines and traveling the world which exposes me to new people and cultures.
