After my tenure at Grantsburg High School, I was accepted to the University of Wisconsin-Stout for B.S. Video Production. As soon as I was accepted, I started to reach out to coaches and staff that work for the Athletic Department and see if I could land a job to make highlight videos. Soon enough, both the Football and the Boys Basketball Head Coaches reached out and were interested in bringing me on the team.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, UW-Stout did not have any Fall sports during the 2020-2021 school year, so I had to be patient and wait for sports to start back up so I could take advantage of the opportunity that was presented to me. When it was announced that UW-Stout was going to host Winter Sports, I immediately reached out to Basketball Head Coach, Jim Lake to see if they were still interested. In December of 2020, he allowed me to come to one of the practices to make a Promo Video for the upcoming season to send out to recruits. Lake and the rest of the coaching staff were very impressed with my work, and they decided to hire me to film games for the upcoming season
On February 3rd, 2021, I officially made my first college highlight video. It was posted on the UW-Stout Men's Basketball Instagram page and was getting a lot of recognition. Two days after my first college game, UW-Stout's Sports Information Director, Layne Pitt reached out to me saying nothing but good things about my video and wanted to hire me to make videos for the whole Athletic Department. I instantly took him up on that offer and since, I have made tons of videos for UW-Stout and filmed sports that I never imagined that I would have the opportunity to film. I am blessed that my hard work from making High School sports videos led me to earn this opportunity to film for collegiate sports.
