Describe your current occupation and if applicable, how was Temple the launchpad for your current position?
I shoot, edit, and produce digital bits and behind the scenes videos/content for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. I work closely with all aspects of production to capture and repurpose original and show material for the web. Temple helped prepare me with tons of hands-on production experience I had both in class and through working on Temple Smash and doing the Temple LA program.

Why do you support Temple University and serve on the Klein Alumni Association Board?
I had a wonderful experience at Temple and did my best to get involved with as many organizations and opportunities as I could. We have a great sense of community, and I would love to be able to keep up with our Alumni and help current students as well.

What excites you about Klein College of Media and Communication?
Seems like a lot of exciting progress in the works. I’m excited to see how the school grows and evolves since I was there. Exciting to be a part of it.

What advice could you give someone looking to become more engaged with Klein College?
Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and connect with people! Get involved, attend events, and make connections with people who have similar interests and goals as you do. Be yourself and put your best foot forward in every interaction and opportunity you take on.

What was your favorite memory while a student at Temple?
I loved being an RA and joining Temple Smash was a blast as well!
