  5. Biography

    While at Baldwin Wallace, I did my best to take advantage of as many of the opportunities made available to me. I was involved in Greek Life and charitable foundations. I played intramural sports, attended meetings of the PR Club, earned my FCC license and broadcasted on 88.3 FM WBW. I held student internships in Media and Community Relations at the Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Browns, respectively. I also worked during the summer months at the BW Buildings & Grounds Department.

    This all resulted in what I look back on as a well-rounded, fun and very enjoyable college experience.

    I currently work in New York City as the video producer for Buddy Media, a Facebook "preferred development partner" that builds and maintains the Facebook presence of Fortune 500 companies.

    I also do freelance film and video work with local bands, comedians and performers.

Questions and answers

What is your favorite thing about BW?

I like the small-town, strong-community feeling you get on campus and in Berea, while having access to a big city and the atmosphere that comes with it.

What advice would you give to prospective students?

Work extremely hard! There is no "busy work" in college. Everything you're doing or are about to do will pay-off. At the same time, don't over-think or stress-out too much. Enjoy this time, as the friends and memories you make at BW will last you a lifetime.

How did BW help you prepare for life after college?

I think the faculty and staff created a learning environment that was very grounded in the real world. They brought their experiences into the classroom and made me realize the benefits that I would eventually see from the work I was doing. There was always a reason or rationale given with the curriculum. It was well worth it!

What would you have changed about your undergraduate experience?

If anything, I would have tried to become even more involved in extra-curricular activities - including ones that I wouldn't have normally considered "my sort of thing".
