I’m merging my passions for media, technology and marketing to create novel value.

Over the past four years, I’ve worked on some of the biggest stages in sports and learned from major global companies while enriching my knowledge as a student at the University of North Carolina. Now, I’m ready to propel these experiences into a meaningful career.

Through UNC’s School of Media and Journalism, digital media went from passion to profession.

In class, I explored topics spanning personal branding to virtual reality production and applied those lessons to a range of projects and internships that supplemented my studies.

With a specialization in Advertising, I graduated with distinction and was one of a dozen seniors to receive a graduate scholarship award in the class of over 400 students.

At the Daily Tar Heel, I launched the “Binge Watch Guide” series, recommending content for students’ next Netflix binge. My posts often ranked among the week’s most clicked.

I led an effort to take newsletter content for the Carolina For The Kids Foundation completely online, publishing directly to a digital platform and distributing via an email newsletter.

Super Bowl Media Week

With the top campaign pitch of my class, I joined FOX Sports for Super Bowl Media Week in Houston where they incorporated my team’s plan into their promotional strategy.

Covering a National Championship

While simultaneously performing with the band, I helped the UNC social media team cover the road to winning a national championship. Students experienced the thrill of victory, through my courtside Snapchat story.

International Media Studies

I spent a week in the London offices of some of the world’s most influential media brands. Companies like Facebook, The Guardian, Google and the BBC offered a deep dive into global media operations.

Lenovo

In the summer of 2016, I helped Lenovo’s worldwide social media team promote Tech World, their biggest marketing event of the year. We launched Lenovo’s global Snapchat handle and I was responsible for daily content creation duties.

Road trip!

Leading up to Tech World, I performed as on-camera talent and helped behind the scenes for a promotional campaign, which received 10 million engagements globally. Another intern and I were tasked with driving the products to the launch event in San Francisco from Lenovo’s Raleigh headquarters in the storyline.

Thanks for joining our journey to #LenovoTechWorld. We travelled more than 3500 miles across 10 states, but the journey doesn't end here! #NeverStandStill

A daily vlog.

Along with all the content created for Lenovo’s corporate account, I made a daily vlog of my experience on the road trip for my personal use as well.

UNC Admissions Department

As a social media content manager at the UNC Admissions Department, our team of four managed the department’s online presence across all platforms during the school year. I’m specifically proud of my video contributions, where I produced, shot and edited many projects that helped to double our manager-defined growth goals for the year.
