I must say that Milton Thaxton and Brandon Griffin were my first true mentors in this industry. They saw the potential in me and allowed me to flourish and help refine my “raw talent and creativity” to be useful for B2C and B2B from consumer brands to government representatives and agencies, to small businesses, and various other industries. I will be forever thankful to them for allowing me to learn from them and I still learn from them. I always like to keep myself available in case they ever need my services or if I can promote them in any way. SMDG (Social Media Development Group) was my roots and you never forget where you come from. Mr. T and Mr. B, if you ever get a chance to read this, I thank you both very much!

Videography, video editing, and producing, graphic design, inbound marketing initiatives, and making presentations. Interviewing people and telling stories. Interacting with the community and helping be an example and even at times spokesperson for UW during various events from community leaders to business executives to state representatives and government affiliate.

MAY 2013 – AUGUST 2013

Assigned to various Non-Profit organizations to assist with media: videography, video editing, social media, blogging, graphic design, and web design, and more.

APRIL 2006 – PRESENT

This is where it all started for me. This is where I learned and was allowed to explore my creativity in recording various services and events for my home church Logan Park. I started April 9th, 2006. I’ll never forget because at the time I was the youngest to ever be on the staff and it was a very humbling and exciting experience. Through the years the strategies and methodologies for proper execution of recording the video and handling the sound the system evolved and got better. I guess you can say I “paved” the way for other young and aspiring people to really get introduced to production, lighting, details, videography, video recording, & video producing, working the sound system and audio engineering, and so much more. Since 2016 and beyond I have transitioned to simply a consulting role for equipment or advice for various things as needed. Those years working that camera for my church impacted who I am now in so many ways. I am incredibly thankful for it.

Responsibilities:

  • Shoot, Produce, Edit, & Transcode media as needed.
  • Coordinate deliverables for multiple projects with a variety of timelines
  • Videographer and Video Producer of multi-camera system
  • Training others on best video/ audio recording practices
  • Incrementing new ideas and procedures on how to go about recording and recording styles
  • Graphic Designs & Video Templates
  • Reconfiguring recording equipment/software to maximize productivity/quality of video and sound
  • Advisor on technical & visual equipment and software
  • Proficient in Adobe Creative Suite (Premiere CC, After Effects, Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator)

Again, since 2016, I’ve transitioned to being simply a consultant but don’t think I won’t be behind the controls one day (especially since we’ve upgraded all the systems to completely digital). I am working on transitioning to pushing a website and mild social media presence in the upcoming years when able. My belief is always giving back. As you get better you give even more to those behind you.

 JUNE 2010 – JULY 2015

If you match up the dates you’ll notice that though I was in college I did various things in multiple capacities for agencies and actually working for departments within my undergrad alma mater as well. In addition to that, those positions which were to help build experience and grow my skills in the various fields I wanted to pursue as a career, I also worked for Walmart as a Community Associate ( June 2010 – Jan 2012) and HHGregg as a Warehouse Associate (June 2012 – July 2015) while doing everything else! (Yes I know crazy right?) Side Note: I totally have so many stories working at these two jobs in particular if you ever just want to laugh for days or just hear some good stories.

Do you want to know what type of person I am? My parents sacrificed a lot for me to go to a highly regarded accredited college and among all that I was going to work while there to pay for my own gas, food, books, and small expenses while in college. I commuted to college every single day for four years coming home sometimes at 2 am in the morning staying late to complete engineering and media lab projects  just to go to bed to go to work at 5:00 am to 9:00 am at HHGregg unloading everything off the truck and managing all the routes for delivery. Then simply change clothes and go directly to the school and I would have classes all day. That was from 2012 onward. My first two years after my deep college schedule I would rush to work at Walmart from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm 6 days out of the week.

I learned customer service and hard work. Many of times I ended up being the only worker whether it was by call-offs or how the schedule would be and for both positions during those four years I did my job. You wouldn’t find one who didn’t work as hard and as diligent as me. That’s why I never put anyone down and I don’t think anybody should. I worked those crazy Black Fridays where you end up working 24 hours straight or more. I can tell you the ins and outs of retail marketing and simply what the staff workers have to go through. These positions may not be considered “experience” towards my career but I learned a lot. I was always reminded why I was working so hard while in school. Because I wanted better for me and have the opportunity one day to give back much more to help others.

  • Ran information desk
  • Transferred calls
  • Conducted Pages
  • Dealing with very emotional people professionally
  • Giving guidance
  • Promoted to a training position in the first year to help train others who were actually getting paid to do the position while I was only a volunteer.
  • Relay messages to doctors was a main support for the Baby/ICU levels

I truly did enjoy my time volunteering. I really learned a great deal and gained experience under a variety of different scenarios and situations where overtime I just developed the skill to quickly adapt and be ready for anything.

I AM...ON LINKEDIN

Well everything you need to know about me is right here on my website but for whatever the reason if you just want to see my information on LinkedIn feel free to do so. I mean who doesn’t have a LinkedIn at this point right? But if anything from seeing various social platforms die is that it’s better to have all of your information at one central location where you have complete control over the narrative you share to people, away from ads, noise, various links to go through, etc. But again, feel free to check my LinkedIn account below.
