    Videography

    I have experience behind and in front of the camera. I shot video reports to go with many of my entertainment and Saturday event features at the Sedalia (Mo.) Democrat from 2009-13. I also was the videographer for the Democrat’s prep sports coverage; we did game reports, features and coach interview shows. In 2011, I swept the video category in the Missouri Press Association awards.
