About me

As a media specialist in Media Production Services, I collaborate with JMU faculty and staff to create instructional media that can be used in their courses and departments for educational purposes. I specialize in all forms of multimedia creation, especially video production and editing. I also work with audio production, graphic design creation, and photography.

I started working in Media Production Services as a JMU student for 2 years, and joined as a staff member in the Libraries in 2015. I am also an adjunct professor within the College of Education’s Learning, Technology & Leadership Education department. I was voted Best Staffer in 2019 and 2020 in The Breeze’s “Best of the Burg” survey.
