I began working as a sports photographer while attending Oklahoma State University.  Primary tasks were to document all college sports as well as chosen student life events for the campus newspaper.  Not only did I shoot photography, I was taught the procedures to develop all of my own photographs throughout the two years I worked as a school photographer.  At the same time, I spent two years in the Theatrical Arts department pursuing an associates degree in stage direction.
     In 1997, I transferred to Northeastern State University to receive a Bachelors degree in Business Marketing.  My video career began as the head of student media services.  My primary job was to film all campus sports, student life, and produced a one hour student video yearbook in which was available for all college participants to purchase.  In my years at Northeastern, the media department received the highest number of yearbook sales and I was given an award for my achievements.
