After earning my degree in Drama/Film from Baylor University, I started work in the television field as an editor on a nationally-syndicated talk show. I later moved to New York, where I edited a series for Food Network and did extensive work for Netflix. In 2014, I moved to Los Angeles and now work primarily in online, short-form digital content.
In 2011 I worked as a substitute teacher for a year in Dallas, and after 6 months was requested as an extended substitute to finish the year as an interim English teacher when one of the faculty members fell ill. I finished the year, having inherited a curriculum that I adapted to be more engaging through film and online activities. At the end of the year, I was asked to fulfill my teaching credentials in order to be offered a full-time position, but chose instead to move into television production at a nearby studio.
