I’m originally from Indiana (state) and spent quite some time traveling around the US with work. In undergrad, I had a media studies focus and started in radio as DJ and eventually became my college station manager. My two internships were with a local radio station cluster and PBS station live weekend production. This lead me to grad school at Central Michigan University as a graduate assistant. I studied broadcast management and lead our flagship news magazine show. While there, I also worked with our sports broadcasting department as the live audio technician and camera operator. My varied background lead to a myriad of jobs across the country including ESPN camera operator and operations assistant, production manager at a multi-language TV station, youth resident assistant, 211 crisis counselor, assistant director, bartender, commercial producer, show producer, bartender, resident director, and mobile video editor.
In 2008, after the drop of the iPhone, I decided to get out of mobile media and applied for positions as a professor and eventually accepted a position at Misericordia University. While there I taught and created courses in video, audio, and social media. I also oversaw the TV and radio station, and eventually launched the school’s first podcast and live-streaming efforts. I also helped start, and at times ran, the multicultural program at the school. In 2018 I stepped away from teaching and put my efforts into running my company Park Multimedia, which I started in 2007, full time. I have an amazing 10-year-old son named Luca and am pretty good in the kitchen.
