I have worked in the audio engineering field for many years and have gained knowledge in the technical world of audio. Not only do I have experience in the studio environment I also have oppurtunities working in the field. I have used multiple traveling sound systems and mobile equipment. I have recently gained experience in electronic news gathering when working with the production of Inside McNeese at McNeese State University. I am the former Sports Editor for the McNeese Contraband and currently a Sports Producer at KBYS 88.3 in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
On top of my technical abilities I have great communication skills. In my tenure on the McNeese speech and debate team I have picked up multiple awards and qualified for nationals in multiple events. On the debate side I have won multiple speaker awards for my rhetorical ability as well as picked up awards for my ability to debate in various styles of debate. In speech events I have won multiple awards in impromptu and extemporaneous speaking, both events in which I have qualified to compete in on the national level. I have also won awards in radio broadcasting events
Teaching has always been a way of life in my family, almost everyone teaches in one way or another. My parents have their PhD in education, my sister is a teacher, and many of my cousins and aunts and uncles are teachers. I chose to go down a different path and thought I would work in broadcast journalism. As I worked in my professional career I quickly came to the realization that teaching is my blood, I have a passion for it. I have a desire and passion to share my knowledge with future generations. Teaching itself has so many benefits when you get to watch your students grow and learn. The teaching profession is somewhere that I feel I can truly make a difference.
