Originally from West Point, NE, I went to college at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. In 2012 I earned my bachelor’s degree in journalism, with an emphasis in broadcast production.

Before arriving at Simpson, I was a producer and editor for The Wedding Storytellers, a wedding movie company out of Nebraska. Eventually I found my way to Simpson in February of 2014.

As Digital Content Specialist, my job takes on many tasks. I produce miscellaneous types of videos for the college both internally and externally. From original storyboard drafts to the final editing stages, I’m your guy. Along with video, I also do some photography throughout campus at certain events. Often times these photos and videos will find their way to Simpson’s social media platforms, which, you probably guessed it, I help manage those as well, including Facebook and Twitter. If I’m not doing any of those activities, you’ll find me assisting in the management of our website.

Of course, I couldn’t do half as good of job if it weren’t for the awesome crew I work with up in the Marketing and Public Relations office. I’m blessed to be able to work with such a diverse and dynamic team. We love to laugh and take care of business… usually in that order. You can’t do great things if you don’t smile once in a while!

As a non-native Iowan, I’ve enjoyed exploring everything Des Moines and central Iowa has to offer. You’ll find me staying active with sports, biking, or anything outdoors. I’m always excited to see what the day has to offer.

So if you see me out and about on campus, be sure to say hi, I’d love to meet you! Odds are I might ask you to be in a photo or video too…
